After Plastic Rice Police Now Seize Plastic Eggs

Artificial plastic eggs were seized from a seller in Kolkata’s Tiljala area on Thursday after a woman complained about eggs which smelled of plastic upon cooking to the civic body and consumer affairs department.

Acting on the basis of a complaint made by woman residing in the Kareya Police Station area, police later detained egg-seller Mohammed Shamin Ansari from Tiljala and seized eggs and sent them for testing.

According to Anita Kumar, the “fake egg” had a strange “plastic-like quality” when it was spread out on a pan.

“I tested my suspicion by putting a match to it and it caught fire. The shell also looked plastic. I was sure that this was not natural and, being a mother, I felt I should alert the public,” Anita said.

“One of my family members was complaining about uneasiness whenever she was having these eggs,’ she added.

Mayor Sovan Chattopadhyay, who ordered a probe into the matter, said, “I have heard about plastic eggs but never thought of seeing them in the city. We are taking a very cautious step and I have asked my officers to run a check at market places and poultry farms.”
