A supermarket in Lindome, near Gothenburg in Sweden, has introduced a minimum age for the purchase of eggs.

The egg shelf in the supermarket is now adorned with a sign reading "we care about the environment - therefore we now only sell eggs to people who have turned 18." This was reported in SR P4, the national radio broadcaster.

The move comes after several weeks of vandalism, wherein buildings and buses have been pelted with eggs by unknown youths. In an interview with the aforementioned broadcaster, supermarket manager Linda Dahlin explains that they had noted an uptick in groups of youths coming into the shop and only purchasing eggs  - something they found both uncharacteristic and suspicious.
