1.1 This Draft Uganda Standard specifies safety and quality requirements method of sampling and test methods for edible hen eggs in shell intended for human consumption.
1.2 This standard applies to hen eggs-in-shell fit for direct human consumption and for use in the food and/or non-food industries.
1.3 All eggs must originate from laying hens or laying hens of breeding stock kept on farms regularly operated under the applicable regulations pertaining to food safety and inspection. 1.4 Interior egg quality specifications for these standards are based on the apparent condition of the interior contents of the egg as it is twirled before the candling light. Any type or make of candling light may be used that will enable the particular grader to make consistently accurate determination of the interior quality of shell eggs. It is desirable to break out an occasional egg and by determining the Haugh unit value of the broken-out egg, compare the broken-out and candled appearance, thereby aiding in correlating candled and broken-out appearance.
