People in NSW are being urged to check their eggs once again after another recall notice was issued over salmonella fears.
The urgent recall from the NSW Food Authority states that the affected product is 700g free range dozens and 800g jumbo free range dozens of Port Stephens Eggs sold at butchers, independent supermarkets and retailers across Port Stephens.
It’s feared that the affected eggs, with a best-before date up to and including June 8, 2019, could be contaminated with salmonella.
Anyone who purchased the affected eggs can return the product to the place of purchase for an immediate refund.
This is the fifth recall of eggs over salmonella fears in the past two months.
The first recall came in March for Bridgewater Poultry Farm eggs sold in NSW, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and ACT.
That same week, Ash and Sons Eggs sold at IGA supermarkets and independent stores around NSW were recalled.
NSW and Victoria saw a recall of Southern Highland Organic Eggs in April.
Less than two weeks later, Steve’s Farm Fresh Eggs were recalled after being sold in western Sydney.
Symptoms of salmonella typically include headaches, fever, stomach cramps, diarrhoea nausea and vomiting, according to NSW Health.
