On Wednesday, it was announced that Ash and Sons were conducting a recall of various cartons of 12 eggs sold in IGA supermarkets, independent stores, bakeries and butchers across NSW.
The products impacted by the recall include:
- Blue Mountains Free Range Eggs 700g
- Blue Mountains Cage Free Eggs 700g
- Fresh Eggs From My Farm 800g
- Farm Fresh Eggs 600g, 700g and 800g
- Single sticker eggs with a best before date of April 26 and May 3.
The Ash and Sons farm is currently under quarantine after undertaking voluntary testing. This comes one week after popular brand Bridgewater Poultry was forced to pull a number of its products from the shelves of major supermarkets across the country.
“Australian Eggs has been working closely with government authorities to identify supply chain links between farms after (Salmonella Enteritidis) was identified in egg products last week,” Australian Eggs managing director Rowan McMonnies said in a statement. "This latest farm was firmly on our radar because it is close to farms in which salmonella has recently been detected.”
The NSW Food Authority advises any consumers concerned about their health to seek medical advice and return the products to the place of purchase for a full refund.
