How to identify fake eggs from the real ones

A Facebook user claimed on Apr 21 that he was served fake eggs at a coffee shop in Ang Mo Kio.

He said that they were "man-made eggs from China" and described them as "soft boiled synthetic eggs".

However, the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority (AVA) issued a statement shortly after on Apr 23 after conducting investigations.

They clarified that the eggs were real and imported from an accredited farm in Malaysia.

They wrote: "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."

The news came as a relief to the public but what happens if you do indeed encounter a fake egg?
