A video has been viewed tens of thousands of times in Thai-language social media posts that falsely claim it shows "fake eggs" being manufactured in China, implying they could be sold in Thailand. The posts circulated online after Thai media reported that local farmers would increase the price of eggs in the kingdom following the Lunar New Year due to rising livestock costs. But the video in fact shows the production of Chinese egg-based culinary dishes. Thai officials told AFP that no fake eggs from China were sold in Thailand.
