Officials have been asked to investigate fake eggs made of plastic which have been distributed for sale in domestic markets.

Mrs Lek told reporters that she bought a plastic bag of 10 eggs for 35 baht from a flea market in Tambon Noong E-roon. However, she said that one of the eggs was found to be a fake because when she tried to fry it on a pan, it emitted the smell of burning plastic and burned.

The vendor said she suspected more fake eggs might have been mixed with the real ones and sold in a bag of ten or more to customers. She said that she heard about the fake eggs on the television and had never seen one before until this week when she tried to fry one.

Mr Pongsak Khunsawasdi, a grocer at Tambon Nong E-roon, said she bought eggs from the poultry farm and did not sell eggs put in plastic bags like those sold at flea market.

Other residents in the tambon who learned about the discovery of fake eggs urged authorities concerned to conduct an investigation to find out where they came from.
