Contaminated egg scandal erupts in Europe
    2017-August-9  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

BRITAIN and France said Monday that some insecticide-tainted eggs may have entered the country, as millions of chickens faced being culled in the Netherlands in a growing European contamination scandal.

Belgium meanwhile vowed full transparency about why it kept the scandal secret despite originally learning in June about the problem involving fipronil, a substance potentially dangerous to humans.

Supermarkets in Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium have pulled millions of eggs from the shelves since Belgium gave the European Commission the first notification on July 20, while retailers in Sweden and Switzerland have followed suit.

The European Commission said Monday that under its EU rapid alert system it had determined that the eggs under suspicion of contamination had also been distributed to France and Britain via Germany.

Dutch farming organization LTO said that several million hens may need to be culled at 150 companies in the country, with 300,000 having already been killed.

Dutch authorities have shuttered 138 poultry farms, about a fifth of those across the country.  (SD-Agencies)
