Egg Recall

Egg Recall

Eggs potentially contaminated with Salmonella have been recalled today across Tasmania to ensure the safety of Tasmanians.

The recall applies to the following brands:

  • ‘Woolworths’ 12 Cage Free Eggs 700g barcode 9300633636982
  • ‘Victorian Fresh’ Barn Laid Eggs 600g
  • ‘Victorian Fresh’ Barn Laid Eggs 700g
  • ‘Victorian Fresh’ Barn Laid Eggs 800g
  • ‘Loddon Valley’ Barn Laid 600g

Eggs with the following Best Before dates have been recalled: 19 March, 23 March, 27 March, 30 March, 3 April, 6 April, 10 April, 14 April, 17 April, 19 April, 20 April, 24 April 27, April 29.

Affected stock is no longer available from supermarkets, but it is important that Tasmanians check they do not have any of the recalled eggs in their homes.

Not all eggs are affected, but if you have any eggs covered by this recall, or you have eggs in your home that might be from these brands, you should discard the eggs and egg cartons into the garbage. Do not dispose of the eggs into your garden and do not feed these eggs to your pets, or livestock. Alternatively, the eggs can be returned to the place of purchase.

Food products contaminated with Salmonella may cause illness with symptoms including diarrhoea, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, fever and headache. Symptoms can start from six to 72 hours after the contaminated food is eaten and can last for up to a week; any consumers concerned about their health should seek medical advice.

There have been cases of illness in mainland Australia linked to recalled eggs, and one case in Tasmania in February – this person has fully recovered.
