Fipronil egg contamination scandal: Full list of withdrawn products

Fipronil egg contamination scandal: Full list of withdrawn products

Products will be withdrawn due to the chemical's unauthorized status, rather than a specific safety concern.

Processed foods containing eggs, including sandwiches and salads, have been recalled by leading supermarkets there.

Another batch of 48,000 contaminated eggs from the Netherlands was imported in July.

Recall millions of eggs recalled from stores and warehouses in Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium after they were discovered by toxic insecticides.

Dutch prosecutors announced Thursday that two people were arrested by a joint Belgian-Dutch task force related to the Fiprionil contamination on poultry farms. However, UK egg farms are undergoing checks to ensure this is the case.

"Some of the contaminated egg products will have had a short shelf life and will have already been consumed", it adds.

The World Health Organization (WHO) says that when eaten in large quantities it can harm people's kidneys, liver and thyroid glands.

On his super-sub role, he added: "That's a nice start, but obviously I prefer to be on the pitch". Oh Premier League football, we've missed you very much.

"All of the food businesses concerned have been contacted and any remaining products removed from sale".

The discovery came about after "a specific alert from the European Commission" as part of its rapid response system regarding human and animal food, the National Sanitary Veterinary and Food Safety Authority (ANSVSA) spokeswoman Alina Monea told AFP.

Millions of eggs have been pulled from supermarket shelves across Europe but no illnesses have been reported.

The EU's executive Commission will call an emergency meeting of ministers over insecticide-tainted eggs in a bid to end "blaming and shaming" over the scandal, health commissioner Vytenis Andriukaitis said Friday.

"Many of the eggs involved were mixed with other eggs, which have not come from affected farms so fipronil residues will be highly diluted", said the agency, referring to the insecticide which was first found in Dutch eggs. Poultry farmers in the Netherlands have alleged that a substance that they bought from a Dutch-based farming company Chickfriend is what has caused introduced Fipronil into the eggs.

Around 85% of eggs consumed in Britain are laid in the UK.
