Risk to consumers

A very small number of the above eggs may be contaminated with salmonella, due to it being found in the environment. The eggshell surface might also be contaminated.

Symptoms caused by salmonella usually include fever, diarrhoea and abdominal cramps.

Our advice to consumers

As a precaution, consumers are advised to thoroughly cook the eggs listed in the table above, this means the egg yolks and whites should not be eaten runny. This will eliminate salmonella and avoid risk of illness.

Consumers should always follow good hygiene and egg handling practices when handling eggs and associated packaging, including:

  • storing eggs in the fridge until use
  • using eggs by the best before date
  • cleaning surfaces and kitchen equipment effectively after use, including the fridge
  • washing hands thoroughly after handling of eggs, including packaging and eggshells

Anyone who is concerned about symptoms should contact their GP or out of hours service in the first instance.

Consumers who wish to return the potentially affected eggs should contact the store from where they bought them for further information.

Only the eggs listed above sold at the stores in the table are affected.  No other eggs sold by these retailers or eggs sold at other shops are affected. There is no need to change your shopping habits for eggs or your usual cooking habits for eggs not listed above.

Scotland – Precautionary advice on cooking processed chicken products following link to UK cases of Salmonella

HPS

27 October 2020

Article: 54/4306

Food Standards Scotland (FSS) and Public Health Scotland (PHS) are reminding consumers to take care when handling and cooking chicken products at home. This advice comes as both organisations are involved in a multi-agency investigation into a suspected rise in cases of Salmonella linked to processed chicken products, such as nuggets, goujons, dippers, poppers and kievs.

Since January 2020, there have been 390 cases of salmonellosis across the UK, caused by two strains of Salmonella enteritidis linked to frozen, raw and breaded chicken products. Of these cases, 32 were in Scotland.

FSS advise that people do not need to make changes to the food they purchase, but they should always follow good hygiene practices to help reduce the risk of food poisoning. These practices include:

  • always carefully checking the advice on food packaging and following the cooking instructions provided
  • following instructions to thaw or defrost before cooking, if required
  • consuming or freezing food by its use-by date
  • washing hands after touching raw chicken products, and before handling ready-to-eat food
  • avoiding cross-contamination by cleaning any surface, plate or utensil that has been in contact with raw meat

Oman – Dhofar Governorate records multiple food poisoning cases

Times of Oman

Dhofar Governorate recorded several food poisoning incidences due to eating some seashells that were affected by the red tide phenomenon

The Ministry of Health (MOH) said, “A number of health institutions in Dhofar Governorate have registered several food poisoning incidences as a result of consuming seashells that contained poisonous substances as the beaches were affected due to the red tide phenomenon.”

“In such cases, the infected person may suffer from various symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhoea, symptoms related to the nervous system like numbness, weakened movement and shortness of breath,” the ministry added.

Therefore, MOH urges fishermen and consumers to avoid eating fishes and seashells coming from the areas affected by the red tide. It has also called upon all to stay away from the areas that suspected to be affected by the red tide phenomenon to avoid poisoning.

Canada – Notice not to consume marinated herring sold by the National Herring Import Company Ltd – Listeria monocytogenes

MAPAQ

Quebec

 October 26, 2020 – The Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAPAQ), in collaboration with the Food Inspection Division of the City of Montreal and the company Compagnie Nationale d’Italie de herring ltée, located at 9820, boulevard Ray-Lawson, in Montreal , is warning the public not to consume the products indicated in the table below, as these foods are likely to contain Listeria monocytogenes .

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

Various formats

Units sold until October 26, 2020
“Herring & Bone – The Jalapeno Herring”

The products that are the subject of this advisory were available for sale at several locations across the province . They were packaged in a clear plastic container with a clear or white plastic cover. They were sold refrigerated. The product label may include, in addition to their own name, the words “National Herring Co.”.

The operator is voluntarily recalling the products in question. He agreed with the MAPAQ and the Food Inspection Division of the City of Montreal to disseminate this notice as a precautionary measure. It should be noted that no case of illness associated with the consumption of these foods has been reported to MAPAQ to date.

People who have any of these products in their possession are therefore advised not to consume it. They must either return it to the establishment where they bought it or throw it away. Even if the product does not show any signs of spoilage or a suspicious odor, consuming food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes bacteria can cause listeriosis, a foodborne illness that can lead to high fever, severe headache, stiff neck or nausea. In this regard, pregnant women and their unborn children, the elderly, children and people with weakened immune systems are considered to be the most vulnerable.
