Mayai hatari Marekani! tuwe macho

Shirika la usimamizi na ukaguzi wa chakula la Marekani (FDA) limetangaza hivi karibuni kuwa mayai yatengenezwayo na mashirika kadhaa hapa Marekani yana vijidudu vya Salmonela. Ugunduzi huo umepelekea shirika hilo kuagiza kuondolewa sokoni kwa mayai takriban nusu bilioni.

Kwa mujibu wa shirika hilo Wamarekani wanakula mayai milioni 220 kwa siku, shamba moja lililopo huko Iowa- Hilandale Farms limeondoa sokoni mayai yapatayo milioni 170 baada ya zaidi ya watu 1000 kuugua huko Iowa na majimbo mengine matatu. Waatalam wanaeleza kuwa uzalishaji wa mayai wa shirika moja pekee unaweza kusababisha watu kadhaa hapa Marekani kuugua na mpaka sasa shamba hilo  la  Hillandale Farms ni la pili kusimamisha uzalishaji wa mayai yake na kuondoa yaliopo madukani.

Inashauriwa kula mayai yaliopikwa na  yakaiva vizuri kwani ndio yanaweza kuuwa vijidudu, mayai kama jicho la ng’ombe ambalo halijaiva vizuri au la kukaanga ambalo lina rojo rojo au chips mayai iliyorojorojo ni hatari sana kwa wakati huu.

Ugonjwa unaotokana na vijidudu hivi unaweza kuuwa watoto na wazee na wale walio na chembe chembe  za kulinda mwili dhaifu kwa urahisi sana na dalili zake ni kichefu chefu, kuharisha ambako kunaweza kuwa na damu, maumivu ya tumbo na homa.

Watu 2000 katika majimbo mbali mbali  wameripotiwa kuugua mpaka sasa kutokana na vijidudu vya Salmonela vilivyotoka kwenye mayai hayo, ushauri wa bure ni  kuwa bora kutupa mayai uliyonayo hasa ukiwa hujui ni shirika gani linahusika  na kuachana na mayai kwa sasa mpaka hali itakapodhibitiwa. Lakini utajuaje mayai yapi hayafai? Shirika la usimamizi wa chakula limetoa orodha ya mayai kutoka mashirika yanayohofiwa kuwa na Salmonela kama ifuatavyo. Brand ikiwa ni aina ya mayai ikifuatiwa namba ya kiwanda na  tarehe ya Julian.
