Testing indicates no salmonella spread – EPF

20th September 2021 By Staff Reporter | news@foodticker.co.nz | @foodtickernz

The Egg Producers Federation says it believes an outbreak of salmonella enteritidis on three layer farms earlier this year is contained and will be eliminated.

The industry group said the Ministry for Primary Industries was nearly finished testing farms that together produced 80% of New Zealand’s eggs, with no further salmonella enteritidis detected.

The EPF added that there have been no further cases of salmonella enteritidis in the human population for three months.

“This gives us confidence that it is contained and will be eliminated,” the federation said.

As a precautionary measure, it still recommended cooking eggs fully.
