The Arab Times reports that the eggs are a product of a country that has been blacklisted by Kuwait because of the presence of bird flu in the exporting country. However, when the eggs arrived at a port in Kuwait, the documents showed the eggs are a Brazilian product.

However, when the Brazilian authorities were contacted, they confirmed the eggs are not of Brazilian origin.

The Ministry of Commerce and Industry has said it will not take action against the importers because the eggs did not reach the Kuwaiti market.
