The NSW Food Authority has warned consuming salmonella may cause food borne illnesses and urged shoppers who may have purchased the eggs to return them for a full refund.
The recall comes weeks after a different brand of eggs sold at IGA and bakeries across NSW were recalled due to salmonella fears.
Earlier this month, Southern Highland Organic Eggs were pulled off the shelves by Synergy Produce due to potential microbial contamination.
Earlier in April, Southern Highland Organic Eggs are being recalled by Synergy Produce Pty Ltd due to potential microbial contamination
The contaminated eggs are sold at Woolworths in New South Wales and Victoria.
SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF SALMONELLA
– Severe Diarrhoea
In March, eggs produced at Bridgewater Poultry in Victoria were recalled across NSW, Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia after a strain of salmonella was detected at the farm.
Ash and Sons Eggs also recalled Blue Mountains free range and cage free eggs with use by dates between April 26 and May 3.
Salmonellosis symptoms include fever, headache, severe diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting.
Symptoms usually start around six to 72 hours after the contaminated food is eaten and can last for four to seven days but can continue for much longer.
