Highlands egg farmers have responded to a recent salmonella outbreak at a Colo Vale farm.
Synergy Produce recently recalled six and 12 packs of Southern Highland Organic Eggs with best before dates up to and including May 9, according to the NSW Food Authority.
The eggs were available for sale in Woolworths in NSW and Victoria, IGA in NSW and other independent retailers in NSW.
The authority said the recall was due to potential salmonella enteritidis contamination, which could cause illness.
Other Highlands farmers have felt the effects of the recall, despite not having a recall on their own products.
Taluca Park farmer Anne-Marie Vigliante said a recall "is always scary as it can jeopardise your industry".
"We've had quite a few people call us and check [if our farm had a recall]," she said.
"We do everything to make sure they are okay. We follow all of the food authority standards."
Ms Vigliante said there were several measures the farm put in place to ensure there was no recall at her farm.
"We're a small scale farm and we do everything ourselves," she said.
"We're in 100 per cent control of what's going on, we're always checking birds, sheds and feeds."
Another egg farmer, who did not want to be named, said they were not worried about the recall as they ran a larger operation and their sheds were portable.
Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) nationally coordinates the recall of foods that pose a health and safety risk to consumers.
The NSW Food Authority coordinates food recalls within NSW.
The Food Authority has the power to mandate a food recall if required.
It is not known how the potential outbreak occurred at Southern Highland Organics.
Synergy Produce and Southern Highland Organics have been contacted for comment but did not respond prior to deadline.
