Five days after local authorities confirmed a farm in Malta had salmonella in its eggs, a second producer has been directed to stop selling their produce on the market.
Located in Victoria, Gozo, the sampled eggs were found to have the bacteria by the Veterinary National Control Program.
The farm must now recall all eggs produced from July 13th onwards, and cannot place any more on the market. With license number PLG 016, it is located in 133, St Domenica Street, Victoria, Gozo.
This is the second farm to be found with salmonella after St. Joseph’s farm was blacklisted last Tuesday.
Authorities have warned the public to not consume eggs originating from either of these farms.
