Authorities have issued an urgent recall of organic eggs, fearing that they are contaminated with salmonella.
The eggs affected are the Southern Highland Organic Eggs by Synergy Produce Pty Ltd.
Both the six and 12 pack of eggs, with dates up to and including May 9, have been recalled.
The potentially contaminated eggs were being sold at Woolworths stores in New South Wales and Victoria.
IGA and other independent grocers around NSW were also stocking the eggs.
The NSW Food Authority have urged consumers to discard the food item immediately.
“Consumers should not eat this product,” the authority said in a statement.
Those who have purchased the eggs are eligible for a full refund.
“Any consumers concerned about their health should seek medical advice and should return the products to the place of purchase for a full refund,” read the statement.
The recall comes nearly two weeks after the Food Authority issued a recall for eggs being sold at IGA and different bakeries due to the risk of salmonella.
Symptoms of salmonella include vomiting, headache, fever, nausea and severe diarrhoea.
