Australia – Strain of salmonella spread across egg farms in NSW and Victoria

Weekly Times


SHARING of eggs between farms is being blamed for the spread of the rare strain of salmonella enteritidis across at least six egg farms in NSW and Victoria, with the possibility of more farms being affected.

Investigations have revealed “the affected properties have clear links in that people, eggs or equipment had been moving between them,” according to the NSW Department of Primary Industries.

Since September there have been six major recalls of eggs due to a strain of salmonella once considered “exotic” in Australia.
