Possibly Tainted Eggs Found in More Countries
THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Reports of possibly tainted eggs linked to the pesticide scandal in the Netherlands and Belgium are cropping up in several countries.
Luxembourg's government has said that it received eggs from a Belgian producer whose eggs were found to contain Fipronil. Some eggs were sent back, while others were used in minced meat and luncheon meat. The remaining minced meat has been destroyed.
In Denmark, 40 eggs from a farm affected by Fipronil have been found at a baker, Nikolai Kuhn Hove of the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration told Denmark's TV2 channel. The eggs were seized Wednesday and the state agency said it would continue to monitor the situation.
Britain's food safety watchdog says far more eggs from affected farms have been imported than previously thought.
Dutch authorities arrested two men Thursday on suspicion of involvement in the illegal use of the pesticide Fipronil in poultry farms.
