Fake eggs at our shores

Recommended Posts

Clutched

I got a shock yesterday when one of the eggs my wife bought from the market turned out to be fake. I guess most of us have watched the fake eggs from China videos on youtube and I'm totally shocked that it has reached our shores. She bought it from the egg seller from the wet market stall where one can choose individual eggs priced according to their respective size. So far I've used 4 of the 20 and one is confirmed fake. The tell tale signs:

 

1. Thin shell when broken

2. Egg white is very watery

3. Paper like membrane

4. Rough shell surface

5. I kept the contents in the fridge and after a day, the egg mixture has taken on a flour like consistency.

 

As the AVA is closed during the weekend, we've already emailed AVA and kept the content as evidence. I'll probably keep the remaining unused eggs from the stall as evidence if need be.

 

Here are the pics:

Huge profit from making them. No need to have chickens and farm. Everything made in backyard lab.

Yeah sounds like a lot of trouble to fake the yolk, the shell, the eggwhites etc.

you still need to have a chicken farm, rear chicken in order to harvest egg

imagine you can hire a few cheap village workers and make fake eggs in a tiny room

the profit is almost unlimited in making fake goods

it's the most blackheart merchant

Could it be a "spoilt" egg? Quite unlike for people to make fake eggs here - the cost of egg here is too cheap.

 

Anyway, do keep us updated of AVA's test.

 

Tks!

What else is new?

Putting melamine in milk, dumping 12,000 dead pigs into the river, making fake eggs.
