This webinar intends to chart the history of the Salmonella bacteria in eggs, providing background information before focusing on the Salmonella crisis of the 1980s and the industry’s response through the launch of the British Lion Code of Practice. Over time, the comprehensive British Lion Code of Practice has effectively eradicated Salmonella from British eggs to the extent that the Food Standards Agency (FSA) considers that, as long as they are produced to British Lion standards, everyone in society, including those in vulnerable groups, can eat runny eggs. However, there are still aspects of egg safety enforcement to consider, particularly when businesses purchase non-Lion eggs, either intentionally or by accident. This webinar will look at the importance of ensuring that Food Safety Management Systems cover the issue of eggs and Salmonella and how overlooked issues could impact the Food Hygiene Rating.
