With a prevalence of salmonella outbreaks across Europe being linked with eggs, is now the time to crack down in the UK? Food safety expert Sterling Crew discusses the latest developments in salmonella control in eggs, including a new ‘British Lion Code’. He’ll also be talking about why we’ve seen an increase in imported eggs in Britain and why EHOs should have eggs at the top of their agenda for any visit to a foodservice venue.

CPD: 1 hour

The British Lion Code of Practice is the UK’s most successful food safety scheme. More than 90% of UK eggs are now produced to British Lion standards and more than 150 billion British Lion eggs have been produced since its launch in 1998. In 2017, the Food Standards Agency confirmed that Lion eggs are the only ones that are safe to be consumed runny, or even raw, by vulnerable groups.

All eggs that carry the British Lion mark meet the stringent requirements of the British Lion Code of Practice which ensures the highest standards of food safety. The independently audited code contains strict food safety controls above and beyond EU and UK legislation, and covers more than 700 auditable points from Salmonella vaccination to complete traceability of hens, eggs and feed.
