Worm-like substance found in eggs are actually “tissues spoiled by bacteria”

A weird worm-like substance that emanated from eggs in Chonburi was not any kind of parasite but tissues that were spoiled by bacteria.

 

Rangsiya Sara-uppatham, a 34-year-old Chon Buri resident, on May 31 posted photos of the eggs that were bought from a Tesco Lotus store and which turned into something that looked like worms when being boiled.

 

A day later, Tesco Lotus and the Department of Disease Control took the eggs for a lab test.

 

Dr Taweesak Songserm, from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at Kasetsart University, said worms cannot normally enter eggs due to their hard shells.

 

The strange texture was caused by the high quantity of bacteria that changed the property of the eggs and resulted in a worm-like appearance, he added.

''Roundworms are the most common type of worm to infest a chicken. ... Very occasionally in severe cases, a worm can migrate to the hens' oviduct and a worm will be found inside an egg

 Typically you can't get chicken tapeworms from eggs of hens with a slight infestation of tapeworms. If the infestation is severe you may get worms in the egg''

 

I guess the veterinary expert is unaware how the shell is formed.

Maybe the worm entered the egg while it was developing insid the chicken, before the hard outer shell formed?

I think the chicken came first, um no maybe the egg, no definitely the chicken or how would it cross the road, now I'm not sure.

Another in  a series of The Nation articles that spends 5 paragraphs to tell you absolutely nothing clear, useful or meaningful about its supposed topic?

 

Tissues inside the eggs?  High levels of bacteria?  And so, why?  how?  And what happens with the apparently rotten eggs?
