Spanish eggs imported into the UK are contaminated with salmonella bacteria.

Health authorities have issued a warning regarding imported Spanish eggs that have been contaminated with salmonella bacteria. There have been over 140 cases in northwest England and west Midlands. Authorities are urging food manufacturers and caterers to use only eggs produced in England.

While the risk for travellers of exposure to contaminated eggs is small, for the immediate future, travellers should insist that any eggs they consume are produced in England.
