Following the recent recall of eggs from Coles and Woolworths last week, and a second recall issued by Australia New Zealand Food Standards in New South Wales due to more fears of salmonella contamination, a third recall has just been announced.
In addition to the below egg recall, another recall noticre has been issued for eggs across New South Wales and Victorian supermarkets over fears of salmonella contamination. The affected brand is 'Synergy Produce' Southern Highland Organic Eggs, which are sold at Woolworths in both states, IGA in New South Wales and other independent grocers.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission issued the recall for 12 and six-egg cartons of the brand with best before dates up to and including May 9.
The source of the infection has been traced back to Victoria’s Bridgewater Poultry, which was placed under quarantine when authorities investigated.
A spokesman for Egg Farmers of Australia said that the outbreak may be blamed on migratory birds.
As is the case for the previous recalls, consumers should not eat these eggs, and return them to their place of purchase for a full refund.
SECOND RECALL ISSUED FOR EGGS IN NSW
Australian shoppers who purchased Ash and Sons Eggs from IGA supermarkets, independent stores, bakeries and butchers in New South Wales with best before dates of April 26 and May 3 should return the products to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Ash and Sons Blue Mountains Cage Free Eggs 700g,
Ash and Sons Fresh Eggs From My Farm 800g,
