Batch of Eggs Sold in S’pore Being Recalled Due to Presence of Salmonella Enteritidis

A batch of eggs sold in Singapore is being recalled due to the presence of salmonella enteritidis.

The eggs were imported by six companies from the Teo Seng Layer Farm 1 in Johor, Malaysia. You can identify the affected eggs by the code CEJ027, which is stamped on the eggs.

Safe to Consume If Cooked Thoroughly

Just because salmonella has ‘salmon’ in it, doesn’t mean that it can’t exist outside of fish.

If the contaminated eggs are consumed, the bacteria can cause food poisoning, leading to diarrhoea, abdominal pain, fever, nausea, and vomiting.

The infection typically clears up within a week, but it can lead to serious infection in vulnerable groups such as the elderly, young children, and those with weakened immunity.

If you suspect that you’ve consumed the affected eggs and start to feel unwell, do seek medical attention.

However, these contaminated eggs are actually safe to consume if cooked thoroughly. The heat can destroy the bacteria completely.

So don’t go throwing all the eggs in your kitchen away, OK?

Farm Suspended, Companies Told to Withhold or Recall Eggs

The Singapore Food Agency said on 14 October that they’ve directed all six companies that imported the eggs to either withhold or recall them.

Among the six companies, BH Fresh Food has been directed to recall the eggs distributed to retailers. The recall is still ongoing, so you still have to be careful when buying eggs.

The other five importers have been told to not distribute the affected eggs.

Additionally, the farm has been suspended, and will not be able to export their eggs to Singapore. They’ll only be approved for export after the farm has solved the source of contamination.
