Farm recalls eggs as authorities investigate
The NSW Food Authority advises that ‘Eggz on the Run’ is undertaking a voluntary recall of Glendenning Farms eggs as part of an investigation into human illness.
A cluster of human cases of Salmonella Enteritidis, have been detected in the Sydney area. To date there have been 23 confirmed cases.
The NSW Food Authority is working with NSW Health in investigating the cluster.
Salmonellosis symptoms include fever, headache, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. Symptoms usually start around six to 72 hours after the contaminated food is eaten and usually last for four to seven days but can continue for much longer.
If you have immediate health concerns contact your medical professional in the first instance.
Consumers should not consume these products and either bin or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. You do not require proof of purchase for a recalled item.
Product recall details are:
