Autoridades de saúde estaduais e federais estão agora investigando um aumento por todo o país de infecções por Salmonela ligadas a ovos com casca. A atual retirada de ovos do mercado que foi emitida pela FDA não afetou os ovos distribuídos em Massachusetts. DPH continuará a acompanhar de perto a situação diariamente para obter novas informações que possam afetar os consumidores de Massachusetts.

EggsPorém, esta retirada vem servir de aviso para a importância de se cozinhar muito bem os ovos e os produtos derivados de ovos e assim evitar doenças causadas por alimentos. Lave as mãos, utensílios de cozinha e as superfícies onde prepara a comida com água e sabão após contacto com ovos crus. Também se devem guardar imediatamente na geladeira/frigorífico os ovos que não usar ou os alimentos feitos com ovos.

Para receber mais informações sobre a segurança no consumo de ovos, clique aqui ou entre em contato com o Programa de Proteção dos Alimentos da Agência de Saúde Ambiental do DPH, através do telefone 617-983-6712.
