It should also be remembered that bacteria present on the surface of the shells may be transferred to other surfaces as a result of contact with contaminated eggs” – indicated the representatives of GIS -at.
The producer is the company Ovovita from Rzgów. “The Egg packing plant Pravda, immediately after receiving the information about the detection of Salmonella Enteritidis on the surface of the eggs, began withdrawing the batch from the market and informed the farm from which the eggs came” – GIS reported.
