HC Deb 07 March 1990 vol 168 cc709-10W
Mrs. Gorman

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what information he has as to whether salmonella enteritidis PT4 can multiply in bulk liquid egg in a frozen state.

Mr. Maclean

Information is not available on whether salmonella enteritidis PT4 specifically is able to multiply in bulk liquid egg in the frozen state. It is expected to behave like most bacteria, which are unable to multiply at temperatures below 0 deg C.
