Japanese Mayonnaise Banned in Australia?

I can’t believe I am posting this – I will check the facts and see if it is true.  It can’t be?  Can it?  I hope I can post a retraction!

The owner of a Korean supermarket told me that the Australian government is not allowing imports of Japanese mayonnaise – even though the egg content is heat sterilised.  Surely this can’t be true?

If a truck load of this fell on you, you'd be in trouble!

There is no substitute for Japanese mayo on the market, so if it will be banned, how are you supposed to adjust your diet?  What?  Do we just stop eating dishes that require Japanese mayo?

Australia is a country that allows rugby, rockfishing, phenomenal binge drinking, prostitution, cage fighting…  and we ban condiments?  What the hell sort of risk management is this?

NEWS – Now I am told that it is only Kewpie brand (the most popular brand) they are harrassing.  Hanamasa and the others have not been targetted yet…
