The Ministry of Climate Change and Environment (MOCCAE) has issued a circular to concerned local authorities to ensure that the country’s markets are free of Salmonella contaminated eggs originating from a farm in the US state of North Carolina, “Rose Acre Farms.” Entities responsible for implementing the circular include the Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority and the municipalities of Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Qaiwain, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah.
The decision is based on the findings of an investigative report following the warning issued by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC0 regarding illnesses traced back to the Rose Acre egg production farm in Hyde County, North Carolina.
Rose Acre Farms recalled over 200 million eggs from nine US states, in addition to nine countries, including the UAE.
MOCCAE asked the concerned departments not to provide import permits for eggs from Rose Acre Farms and Cal-Maine Foods Inc, if they carry the codes listed on the FDA website. #egg #newspaper #photography #news #ministry #government #abudhabi #dubai #shj #ajman #fda #newspage #photography #department #health #food #safetyfirst #thegulftoday @moccaeuae
