liquid egg is imported from Australia and during the year there was a case where
one particular tin failed the Alpha-Amylase test, and the Australian Egg Board in
this country arranged for it to be re-exported back to the original pasteurisation
plant for examination. The department was informed that the tin must have become
contaminated after the pasteurisation, and the Board has informed us that they are
taking steps to ensure that the risk of recurrence of contamination is reduced to
an absolute minimum.
It may be confusing to talk of frozen liquid egg, but in the Liquid Egg
(Pasteurisation) Regulations, 1963 liquid egg means any mixture of yolk and
albumen other than reconstituted dry egg and includes any such mixture which is
frozen, chilled or otherwise preserved.
