Supermarkets urgently recall batch of eggs over salmonella concerns

Major supermarkets in the UK are urgently recalling a batch of eggs over fears they contain salmonella.

The Food Standards Agency is advising customers who have shelled out on a specific batch of British Lion eggs.

Affected batches can be identified by the code and the best before date stamped on the eggshell.

A small number of the eggs may be contaminated with Salmonella as it was found in the environment.

The shell may also be contaminated.

Salmonella is a bug than can cause a fever, diarrhoea and cramps.

A post on the FSA website stated: "The FSA is issuing precautionary advice to consumers who have purchased a specific batch of British Lion eggs which may be contaminated with salmonella.

"Affected eggs can be identified by the batch code and the best before date stamped on the eggshell."

The eggs affected are in batch 1UK15270 and have been sold in some selected stores in England and Wales.
