Hundreds of thousands of chickens may need to be destroyed after salmonella outbreak sparked a massive egg recall across Australia. The eggs were pulled from shelves across Victoria, New South Wales, Tasmania, South Australia and the ACT after salmonella-related illnesses were linked with the Bridgewater Poultry farm in central Victoria.
Agriculture Victoria placed the farm where the potentially contaminated eggs were processed, Bridgewater Poultry in central Victoria, under strict quarantine measures to prevent the salmonella enteritidis strain from spreading.
