The NSW Food Authority is urging customers who purchased Glendenning Farm-branded eggs in metro Sydney areas to throw out or return their eggs after 23 cases of salmonella have been confirmed.
On Saturday the authority confirmed the 23 cases of salmonella poisoning they were investigating were linked to the Glendenning Farm eggs, which are available from small independent supermarkets and retailers in metro areas of Sydney.
Carton packs of one dozen eggs and bulk trays with best before dates from September 8 to October 1 have all been voluntarily recalled by Eggz On The Run, the company selling the eggs from Glendenning Farm.
Customers can return their eggs to where they were purchased for a full refund, with or without the receipt.
The effects of salmonella poisoning usually become apparent six to 72 hours after eating the affected eggs, and symptoms include fever, headache, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. The sickness usually lasts four to seven days and most healthy people recover with treatment. If you suspect you’re suffering from the effects of salmonella, speak to a health professional immediately.
