PETALING JAYA: Hypermarket chain AEON has recalled a batch of eggs which has been flagged by Singaporean authorities for the presence of Salmonella enteritidis (SE).
The affected eggs from Linggi Agriculture Sdn Bhd bear the “CEM014” stamp.
Yesterday, the Singapore Food Agency said it was recalling the batch of eggs. It said SE can cause foodborne illness if food is undercooked or consumed raw.
“AEON would like to inform that we have immediately recalled similar batches of eggs that can be identified by the stamp ‘CEM014’ from our supermarket shelves.
“Customers who have purchased the products are urged to return them to the place of purchase at the customer service counter for a full refund as per the receipt,” it said.
Last week, Singapore authorities also ordered the recall of eggs from Lay Hong Bhd Layer Farm Jeram because of a similar issue.
