Runny Eggs Back On The Menu For Pregnant Women

Then junior health minister Edwina Currie said most egg production in Britain was infected with salmonella.

The Food Standards Agency has now given the thumbs up to runny eggs, but at-risk groups should avoid them if they're imported.

But by early 1989 the link between eggs and salmonella poisoning was proved beyond doubt.

Andrew Joret, of the British Egg Industry Council, which runs the British Lion scheme, said: 'We have been confident for some time that the safety record of British Lion eggs means that vulnerable groups such as pregnant women, babies and elderly people should be able to consume them when runny.

However, the new advice applies exclusively to eggs that have been produced according to the British Lion code of practice, which can be identified via the indicative red stamp.

Secret behind durian fruit's pungent smell
Earlier, the sources called this insane durian fruit as one that smells of "turpentine and onions, garnished with a gym sock".

The efforts of the industry means the Food Standards Agency (FSA) has now lifted the health warning for eggs carrying the British Lion logo.

For all other eggs, pregnant women and other vulnerable groups are still advised to avoid eating raw yolks.

A report published by committee in July last year said the presence of salmonella in United Kingdom eggs had been "dramatically reduced" in recent years, and the risks were "very low" for eggs which had been produced according to the British Lion code.

More than 90% of United Kingdom eggs are produced under this scheme, the "British Lion Mark", printed on eggs in red ink, was introduced so that eggs could be traced back to the farm of origin and to show best-before dates.

But a new study has found that the presence of salmonella in eggs has dramatically reduced in recent years thanks to better hygiene.

Indeed, pregnancy advice for expectant mothers has long cautioned against eating any form of runny eggs.

And it added United Kingdom eggs that do not carry the Lion mark, non-hen eggs or eggs from outside the United Kingdom should must be hard-boiled for all vulnerable people.

The FSA said it had changed its recommendations after it "thoroughly reviewed" scientific evidence. "The advice is particularly good news for these groups and will also enable care homes to put many traditional egg dishes back on their menus".

'The major reduction in the risk of salmonella in Lion eggs is testament to the work carried out by egg producers. Eggs are highly nutritious, containing many key nutrients including high quality protein, vitamin D, selenium, iodine, choline and omega-3 fatty acids.

However, it said severely immunocompromised individuals who need medically supervised diets should still cook eggs thoroughly.
