'Fake eggs' sold at Ang Mo Kio coffeeshop? Nope, don't be fooled

No fake eggs are being sold at a coffeeshop in Ang Mo Kio, confirmed the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority (AVA) in response to allegations circulating on social media.

This comes after Facebook user Jerome Junior posted a video on Apr 21, claiming that "man-made eggs from China" were being sold at Block 727 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 6.

"They have hit Singapore. This was what I was served at a coffee shop in Ang Mo Kio. Soft boiled synthetic eggs," he added in his "alert to everyone".

In a statement on Facebook yesterday (Apr 23), AVA said that it was aware of the video and has conducted investigations:

"Our investigations have shown that the eggs sold there are real, and were imported from an accredited farm in Malaysia.

"There are no imports of eggs from China, as China is not an approved source.

"Both imported and locally produced eggs are also regularly sampled for food safety and compliance with AVA's standards and requirements."
