An Egg Recall Is Now Hitting Major Supermarkets, Continuing A Big Egg Week

Capping off what’s been easily the biggest egg week in recent memory, Coles and Woolworths are among the retailers currently being subjected to a recall on a range of eggs amid fears of a possible salmonella contamination.

Bridgewater Poultry issued the recall on a wide range of eggs currently being sold across Australia due to concerns over potential microbial contamination. Or, in other words, they very potentially could make people a bit sick.

The eggs affected in the recall include the Woolworths branded Cage Free Barn Eggs (700g), and the 600, 700, and 800g Victorian Fresh Barn Laid Eggs. Those eggs are sold via Woolworths and independent supermarkets in Victoria, Tasmania, New South Wales, and the ACT, as well as Coles stores in both Victoria and South Australia.

Additionally, the recall includes 600g Lodden Valley Barn Laid eggs in both Victoria and South Australia.

Food Standards Australian & New Zealand issued the recall earlier this morning, asserting that the affected cartons have best before dates of March 20, 23, 27, 30, and April 3, 6, 10, 14, 17, 20, 24, 27, and 29.

Bridgewater Poultry has yet to issue public comment on the recall, while punters concerned about their eggs can return them to their place of purchase for a full refund.

The real takeaway from all of this? There’s an extremely, extremely small chance the unceremonious egging inflicted on Dipshit Senator Fraser Anning could also gift him with a raging case of the shits.

And boy oh boy wouldn’t that just be *so sad*.
