European states recalled eggs over contamination scandal

Reem Saad  Doha News

The chemical has been found in eggs in Luxembourg, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland and France, while Britain has reported that 700,000 eggs distributed across the United Kingdom have been implicated in the contamination scare.

The UK food watchdog said about 700,000 eggs had been sent to the country from potentially contaminated Dutch farms, up from an earlier estimate of 21,000.

In Germany and Holland, supermarkets Aldi and Lidl have already taken millions of eggs off their shelves, in what Aldi said was a "purely precautionary" measure.

"But while the risk to human health has been ruled out, investigations are being actively pursued at poultry farms and manufacturing sites of egg-based products", it added.

Around 700,000 eggs implicated in a Dutch insecticide scandal have been distributed in Britain in processed food, authorities said on Thursday, while playing down the risk to public health.

Players either in Caribbean Premier League (CPL) or English country have been recalled to fulfill their domestic commitments. The tournament will feature eight teams, with four - Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka - qualifying automatically.

The French authorities had previously identified five food processing factories that had received contaminated eggs from Belgium and the Netherlands.

The Food Standards Agency has warned about 700,000 eggs contaminated with the insecticide have been sent to the United Kingdom from potentially contaminated Dutch farms.

The substance can damage people's kidneys, liver and thyroid glands if eaten in large quantities.

It is an insecticide which is not permitted for use around food-producing animals.

The British Egg Industry Council said consumers concerned about the safety of their food should look for British Lion eggs.

Criminal investigations are underway in Belgium and in the Netherlands, where two firms allegedly sold the chemical to a Dutch company specializing in sanitizing poultry farms.

Eggs containing the banned insecticide Fipronil have so far been found in more than half the European Union nations, along with Switzerland and Hong Kong, officials said.

The core issue involves the use of Fipronil which is believed to have been used inappropriately in cleaning products on chicken farms, although it is not authorised around food producing animals.

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