GIS reported that the producer had taken steps to inform recipients about the need to withdraw the batch of eggs.

“Do not eat the batches of eggs specified in this warning, especially raw, due to potential health risks. Also, be aware that bacteria present on the surface of the shells may be transferred to other surfaces as a result of contact with contaminated eggs” – added GiS.

According to data published by the Epidemiology Department of the National Institute of Hygiene in Poland, Salmonella bacilli have been the most common cause of bacterial gastrointestinal infections for many years. Illnesses caused by them usually present as gastroenteritis, characterized by diarrhoea, abdominal pain and vomiting. Infections are most commonly transmitted through the alimentary canal, after eating contaminated food.

On the website of the Chief Sanitary Inspectorate, warnings regarding food or products intended to come into contact with food are regularly published. These announcements – as the GIS emphasizes – are not used to stigmatize entrepreneurs, but to take immediate action: return products to the store or withdraw them from the assortment. Thanks to cooperation with companies from the food industry, consumers can be quickly and effectively informed about the threat.
