March 13 – Four importers have been instructed to recall eggs from Lay Hong Bhd Layer Farm Jeram in Malaysia.
This is due to the detection of Salmonella Enteritidis (SE) in the product that may bring about foodborne illness if food is consumed raw or undercooked, said the Singapore Food Agency (SFA).
“The recall is in progress. The farm is also suspended and SFA will lift the suspension only when the farm has rectified the SE contamination issue,” said SFA in its website.
As SE can be destroyed by heat, eggs are safe to consume if they are cooked thoroughly, it said, adding that the symptoms include diarrhoea, abdominal pain, fever, nausea and vomiting.
Take note of the importers are Ang Seng Eggs Supplier, Dasoon Pte Ltd, Heng Guan Food Industrial Pte Ltd and Lam Leng Trading Co.
