The Singapore Food Agency (SFA) is recalled eggs imported from Yasensvit farm in Ukraine, because the presence of Salmonella Enteritidis was detected in some of the eggs.

According to the SFA, the eggs affected by the recall can be identified by a stamp on the shell that reads “CEUA001.” A picture that accompanies the recall notice shows a white shell egg with the stamp in pink lettering.

The recall is ongoing, and Yasensvit has been suspended from exporting eggs to Singapore until it has “rectified” the Salmonella issue.

According to SFA, eggs imported into Singapore must come from accredited sources that meet SFA’s food safety and animal health standards. As part of the SFA accreditation criteria and import conditions, farms must be free of Salmonella Enteritidis.

Domestic egg farms must also meet these standards, and they are required to have good farm practices and strong biosecurity measures in place. The standards call for having a grading system to remove soiled and/or cracked eggs, and regularly testing the eggs for the presence of Salmonella Enteritidis.

SFA stated that the recalled eggs can still be consumed, but only if they are cooked thoroughly. Anyone who may have become ill from consuming any of these eggs is encouraged by SFA to seek medical attention.
