The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore has posted a statement on its Facebook page to clarify that the eggs sold at an Ang Mo Kio coffeeshop are real.
This follows reports of a Facebook video by one user, Jerome Junior, who accused the coffeeshop of selling fake synthetic eggs from China.
AVA wrote: "We are aware of a video showing allegedly fake eggs bought from a coffee shop in Ang Mo Kio. Our investigations have shown that the eggs sold there are real, and were imported from an accredited farm in Malaysia. There are no imports of eggs from China, as China is not an approved source.
"Both imported and locally produced eggs are also regularly sampled for food safety and compliance with AVA's standards and requirements."
The video in question which alleges that the eggs are fake has been removed by Jerome, who could not be reached for comment.
Meanwhile, users who want to know what real fake synthetic eggs look like can watch this video uploaded by one of our readers.
