Eggs are like any other potentially hazardous food and need to be stored, handled and prepared safely to reduce food safety risks.  One significant risk with eggs is the tendency to carry Salmonella bacteria.

The Eggs need TLC initiative raises awareness of the risks associated with Salmonella and eggs, and how to avoid these risks. The target audience is the Victorian foodservice industry – including egg wholesalers, retailers, distributors and producers – and consumers.
