Warning : CEM014 Eggs May Have Salmonella Enteritidis!

CEM014 Eggs May Have Salmonella Enteritidis!

Please check if you have any CEM014 eggs because they may have been contaminated with Salmonella enteritidis!

Find out what’s going on, and why you should properly cook all CEM014 eggs, or return them!


Food Recall : All Eggs Stamped With CEM014!

On 19 March 2021, the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) announced a recall of all eggs stamped with CEM014, due to possible Salmonella enteritidis contamination.

On 20 March 2021, AEON in Malaysia followed up with a recall of the same CEM014 eggs in Malaysia, at about 11:17 PM.

These eggs were all produced by Linggi Agriculture Sdn. Bhd. in Melaka, Malaysia.

Customers who purchased these CEM014 eggs should return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.


Can You Still Consume CEM014 Eggs?

The Singapore Food Agency detected Salmonella enteritidis in the CEM014 eggs, which may cause illness if consumed raw or undercooked.

Symptoms of a Salmonella enteritidis infection include fever, abdominal cramps and diarrhoea approximately 12-72 hours after consuming any contaminated food or beverage.

So these eggs can be safely consumed if properly cooked, as the Salmonella enteritidis bacteria is killed by cooking.

In fact, SFA advised “customers who have purchased the affected eggs” to “cook them thoroughly before consumption”.

It is important to point out that washing the affected egg has no effect, as the Salmonella enteritidis bacteria is inside the shell.

This is because Salmonella enteritidis infects the ovaries of hens, and contaminate their eggs before their shells are formed.

Only proper cooking can ensure safe consumption. So either cook these properly, or return them.
