Kerala to probe reports of sale of artificial Chinese eggs in state from Tamilnadu

Reports recently surfaced that these ‘artificial’ eggs were coming into the state from Tamil Nadu.

With “artificial” Chinese eggs reportedly making their way into certain parts of Kerala, state Health Minister K.K. Shylaja on Wednesday said a probe would be launched to find out the truth.

Speaking to the media, Shylaja said she has not received any complaints on this score, but she will examine the media reports and find out whether such a product has made its way into the state.

“I will now ask the Food Safety Commissioner to seriously look into these media reports that such a product is avaliable. It would be nice if someone comes up and provides a sample of it so the tests can be conducted quickly,” said Shylaja.

Reports recently surfaced that these ‘artificial’ eggs were coming into the state from Tamil Nadu.

According to reports, Idukki district of Kerala bordering Tamil Nadu is where this product is available.

Idukki district Medical Officer Rekha also told the media that in the wake of reports on the eggs, she too will probe the matter.

‘Artificial eggs’, reports say, unlike normal eggs are brown in colour and if kept in the open after cracking them, flies and other insects are not attracted to them. The eggs do not spoil or rot even after cooking or leaving them out in the open, according to reports. These are unverified claims.
