Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 21/05/2020

Vava’u 14 MP Saia Piukala yesterday reported in Parliament that they’ve discovered what he claims to be “fake eggs” being sold at stores in Vava’u.

He called on the Ministers for Health and Agriculture to address this urgent concern as there have been a number of complaints about food items being sold on the island and they are worried for the safety of the consumers.

The town officer of Neiafu Vava Lapota says the issue has been reported to the Food Authority to investigate. Lapota says they have not been able to determine where the eggs are from and how they arrived in Vava’u.

The Health Minister responded that she will follow up on this issue and report back in Parliament.
