Well, this is weird! 

Singapore barred the importing of quail eggs from this particular Malaysian farm because they found traces of drugs in the eggs.

SFA (Singapore Food Agency) said that the quail eggs originated from a farm called Telic Farm, and they supply almost 20 percent of quail eggs in Singapore.

SFA revealed that drug (known as nicarbazin) which was found in the quail eggs is normally used to stop female birds from producing more eggs or to ensure that they lay eggs which never hatch. SFA was quoted by The Straits Times as saying,

“The suspension will be in place until SFA has verified that the farm has measures in place to ensure that their eggs do not contain drug residues and are safe for human consumption.”

According to SFA, Singapore has received nearly 17 million fresh quail eggs from Telic Farm; and their quail eggs supply comes from Malaysia, China, Taiwan, and Vietnam.

Damn, we really do hope that the authorities in Singapore will look into this matter and find a solution as soon as possible. That said, the Malaysian authorities have not given any updates on the matter yet. Perhaps, we should wait until more information on the matter is released.
