Don’t Reuse Egg Crates Due to Salmonella Threat


The Health Ministry has warned against the use of used egg crates in day care facilities, preschools, educational institutions, rehabilitation centers, and more, due to the possibility of contracting salmonella poisoning embedded within the crates.

The Ministry indicated that the bacteria are likely to be found in eggs, especially in their shells. Since used egg crates cannot be washed or sterilized, they suggest that they are not used for artistic creation or storage.
