Salmonella-infected Eggs Removed from Market
The Health Ministry has sent a number of teams around markets and shops to remove salmonella-infected batches of eggs marked with the code 3CY4404.03.
The eggs came from one particular producer which has not been named, and the Veterinary Services have put down a large number of chickens which ate infected soybean feed.
Consumers are advised to check the code on the egg containers and throw away any of the contaminated eggs to avoid the risk of contracting the disease. Salmonella is zoonotic, meaning it can be passed from animals to humans. Infants and young children are the most vulnerable groups to salmonella, which can cause diarrhea and other serious symptoms.
