Food authority Fødevarestyrelsen has ordered Hedegaard Foods to recall eggs and a number of egg-based products following the discovery of salmonella in some of its goods. 

According to a Fødevarestyrelsen statement, the company found the bacteria in cages during its own inspections at a farm in Grindsted in central Jutland.

Pasteurised egg products made by the company are also being recalled as salmonella can survive pasteurisation . 

Company says products are safe
Although the Salmonella bacteria was found in a sample taken on 15 August, Ivan Noes Jørgensen, the chief officer at Hedegaard Foods, insists that his company’s products are safe.

“We analysed all of our products and they were all Salmonella-free before they were shipped,”  Jørgensen said in a statement.

“Fødevarestyrelsen’s rationale is that there can be no question about the integrity of Hedegaard's products, so we recalled the products.”

The products are sold in a variety of shops and catering establishments including Netto, Rema 1000, Føtex, Bilka and Lidl. And they are also handled by a number of catering companies.
