Eggs unfit for Easter hunt

Apr 18, 2014
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.
