In June 2003, there was a Chinese article about a consumer purchasing a bag of human-made eggs from the food market in Beijing. Although the faked eggs looked practically the same as real ones, the consumer smelled chemicals when cooking the eggs (figure 2). The egg yolk dispersed quickly when it was mixed with the egg white, and the colour was pale. No flavour could be tasted after cooking. According to the officials of the National Bureau of Industry and Commerce, the faked eggs were made from chemicals...

I assume this was created as some kind of guerilla device if there ever need be a reason for it. I mean if the entire egg is made of chemicals and there is obviously a chemical reaction currently I would be worried about some kind of toxic gas being released at the time of the reaction.
