This story is a month old, but I thought I’d wait and see if there was any follow-up communication with the mere egg-consuming mortals of the public.
On Sept. 8, 2018, the New South Wales Food Authority issued a statement saying it was advising that ‘Eggz on the Run’ is undertaking a voluntary recall of Glendenning Farms eggs as part of an investigation into human illness.
A cluster of human cases of Salmonella Enteritidis, have been detected in the Sydney area. To date there have been 23 confirmed cases.
Eggz On the Run lawyer Raed Rahal the Sunday Telegraph the family which ran the company was “not even certain that the outbreak is in the eggs
“The strain is from overseas.
“There was only a certain batch that was supposed to be removed but the company has voluntarily decided to remove all batches of eggs.”
He said the family was “shell-shocked by the news as it is their livelihood”.
“They would certainly not do anything to risk anyone’s safety,” Mr Rahal said.
The egg farmer linked to the latest Salmonella poisoning outbreak has said “it’s not my fault bro” and blamed foreign birds flying in and defecating on his poultry sheds.
In an epidemiologically outrageous claim following the 23 illnesses, the Glendenning Farms worker at Cobbitty in southwestern Sydney has denied any blame.
The farmer, who has been producing eggs for 20 years, told The Sunday Telegraph the salmonella outbreak came from “something to do with the birds.
“Some birds have been flying in from overseas, landed on the shed and chucked a s**t,” he said.
“Even the Food Authority said it wasn’t my fault,” the man said from the farm run by EggzOn the Run.
Back to you, defenders of public health.
