NSW Food Authority on [Sat 8 Sep 2018], said 23 cases of _Salmonella
[enterica_ serotype] Enteritidis had been confirmed in Sydney, leading
to egg supplier Eggz on the Run to voluntarily recall some products
sold under the Glendenning Farm brand. Consumers are advised not to
consume any Glendenning Farm whole shell eggs sold in NSW with best
before dates of Sep 8, 10, 15, 17, 22, 24, 29 or Oct 1 [2018]. The
products were sold in small independent supermarkets and retailers.

"Either bin or return them to the place of purchase for a full
refund," NSW Food Authority said in a statement. "You do not require
proof of purchase for a recalled item."

Fever, headache, diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting are
symptoms of salmonellosis and usually start about 6 to 72 hours after
the contaminated food is eaten. Illness can last 7 days or longer.

The government has restricted the movement of livestock, eggs, manure
and disposables at the farm and ordered the disinfection and
decontamination of equipment.

Investigations are still ongoing.

[Salmonellosis is often thought to be associated with cracked eggs or
eggs dirty with fecal matter, a problem controlled by cleaning
procedures implemented in the egg industry. It is clearly the case,
however, that most of the salmonellosis outbreaks linked to eggs were
associated with uncracked, disinfected grade A eggs, or foods
containing such eggs. The undamaged eggs become contaminated during
ovulation, and thus were contaminated with the bacteria before the egg
shell was formed. To avoid this, uncooked eggs should only be used as
an ingredient, if pasteurized. - Mod.LL
