§ 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.

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.
