Eggs unfit for Easter hunt

  • From wire reports, RIGA

Ahead of the Easter holiday, the Latvian Food and Veterinary Service (FVS), in carrying out inspections in food retail companies, discovered that a warehouse of a certain wholesale company contained a large amount (more than 40,000) of Polish origin eggs with an expiration date already past, said Anna Joffe of FVS, reports Nozare.lv.

Furthermore, the egg packaging had undergone re-branding in order to distribute a product unfit for consumption.

Performing a closer inspection, FVS found out that the visual looks of the egg branding and the text differed from the manufacturer's branding, and several egg cartons had two markings - the manufacturer's and the re-branded one. The inspectors found other signs as well, such as damaged tops of cartons indicating that the eggs had been re-branded in order to extend the expiration date.

The warehouse also contained more than 20,000 eggs with expiration dates of May 5 and April 30. The cartons had visible signs of previous re-branding.

The eggs were removed, and the company instructed to cancel their distribution and to ensure disposal.
