Thiruvanthapuram, Oct 12: With “artificial” Chinese eggs reportedly making their way into certain parts of Kerala, state Health Minister K.K. Shylaja on Wednesday said a probe would be launched to find out the truth. Speaking to the media, Shylaja said she has not received any complaints on this score, but she will examine the media reports and find out whether such a product has made its way into the state. “I will now ask the Food Safety Commissioner to seriously look into these media reports that such a product is avaliable. It would be nice if someone comes up and provides a sample of it so the tests can be conducted quickly,” said Shylaja. Reports have recently surfaced that these “artificial” eggs were coming into the state from Tamil du. According to reports, Idukki district of Kerala bordering Tamil du is where this product is available. Idukki district Medical Officer Rekha also told the media that in the wake of reports on the eggs, she too will probe the matter. (IANS)
