  • Tainted egg scandal France demands more information

Dozens of producers in Belgium and the Netherlands are being investigated for eggs containing Fipronil, which is unsafe to human health though no cases have been reported of people falling sick.

Aldi and Lidl stores in Germany, along with Dutch supermarkets, have already taken millions of eggs off their shelves.

A majority of the affected products are processed foods in which egg is one of the ingredients, such as in sandwich fillings or other chilled foods.

It is believed that fipronil, which is banned for use on animals destined to enter the consumption, may have entered the food chain illegally.

Around 700, 000 potentially contaminated eggs have been distributed throughout the United Kingdom, it has been revealed.

FSA chairman Heather Hancock said she was "confident" that acting quickly was the right thing to do. "Our supplier has made us aware that two salad bowls, which contain egg, may include very small traces of fipronil", said the spokeswoman. Based on the available evidence there is no need for people to change the way they consume or cook eggs. It's banned by the European Union from being used to treat animals destined for human consumption, but it's believed that a disinfectant containing the pesticide was used on some chicken farms in Belgium and the Netherlands. In total, the European Union has sold several million potentially risky eggs.

The two men detained during a series of raids are directors of a company that allegedly used Fipronil on egg farms, Dutch prosecutors said in a statement. Last Friday, it said there was no evidence the United Kingdom was affected at all.

The FSA said the 700,000 eggs now in the food chain mainly affected processed food in which egg is one ingredient among many, such as in sandwich fillings or chilled foods.

As soon as the Belgium has given the warning to his european partners on July 20, dozens of houses have been blocked, and millions of eggs have been removed from supermarkets in eight european countries as a preventive measure, or because their rates exceeded the thresholds set by the regulation.

The likelihood of any related food illnesses from consuming contaminated products is very low. They said they had also seized 6,000 litres of "prohibited products" in Belgium. Britain, France, Sweden and Switzerland have also been warned to keep an eye out. Long-term exposure to great quantities can cause thyroid, liver and kidney damage, and even lead to seizures.

In Denmark, the eggs were discovered before they were used and have been returned to the distributor, but Fødevarestyrelsen wouldn't rule out more cases popping up in the nation.
