An egg you wouldn’t like to be receiving.

Every so often I read something that churns my stomach and this is one of those times. When the lovely Kay from Brink of Bedlam posted this post I knew exactly which company she was referring to as I do like to enter competitions and had actually noticed her winning it. 
Now I don’t know about you but I would be horrified to have bitten into something like that! How many people just wouldn’t have noticed especially if it was a child? So when I read her ‘update’ post which can be read here. I found it interesting that although the company claim to have recalled all stock in the batch nothing official has gone out online. That’s one hell of a company to have managed to call all customers in 24 hours!
I really do suggest you take a few minutes to read over the posts Kay’s made just in case you may have some of the batch. 
But for quick reference the company is Lucky’s and the batch details are:
Batch number is 1.0309 and the best before date is the 7th August, 2012.

*Posted with the ok by Kay – please note Brink of Bedlam has nothing to do with me I just think it’s a fantastic blog and wanted to help get the word out.

    The company need to recall the eggs, and FAST. If anyone were to get food poisoning it could have serious consequences.

    It looks like they are starting to recall them now – they have posted twitter updates asking for people who have them to get in contact and not eat them at least.

    Ugh Just read Kays blog and feel sicky. The second link didn’t work so don’t know what the companys response was. Hope they were REAL sorry!

    Oh my!! That’s disgusting & stillin date allegedly, could you imagine what it would be like by August – no don’t think about it,its horrible.  That’s nearly enough to put me off chocolate.  Thank you for the warning I’m sure the company must have had more people contact them with more “lovely growing” specimens from the same batch.

    wow, I think I may never eat hollow chocolate again ><
