Eggs under a watchful eye
Salted and preserved eggs are under increased scrutiny
in Singapore as the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) introduces new
requirements for the import of such products.
The increased detection of prohibited colourings in eggs (Sudan Red
for example) has brought on these revised requirements.
Such eggs are to be imported from approved sources only, and each
consignment must be accompanied by a health certificate certifying that the egg
products are free from Sudan Red.
The AVA has, so far, approved 17 processing plants from China and three
from Vietnam. If found to be contaminated, the consignment will be rejected and
the processing plants will be suspended from exporting to Singapore.
