Supermarket chain AEON Malaysia is recalling batches of eggs with the 'CEM014' stamp from its shelves in branches across the country
The recall, AEON said, is due to possible salmonella contamination.
In a statement issued yesterday, 20 March, the company said that the step was being taken following the news reports that the Singapore government has recalled eggs imported from Malaysian farms.
The Singapore Food Agency (SFA) flagged the eggs due to the presence of Salmonella Enteritidis (SE). The flagged eggs were identified by the stamp 'CEM014' on them.
AEON is asking customers who have purchased the eggs to return them to the place of purchase at the customer service counter, as SE can cause foodborne illness if food is undercooked or consumed raw
AEON assured that customers will be provided with a full refund as per the receipt.
"Rest assured that the safety and wellbeing of our customers are our utmost priority," it said, adding that those with any queries may call 1300-80-2366 or email [email protected]
Meanwhile, the Veterinary Services Department has acknowledged the recall of eggs in Singapore imported from a farm in the country
