France orders national investigation amid Europe tainted egg scandal

Authorities will incinerate the eggs.

In total, 180 farms in the Netherlands are confirmed to have used an anti-lice poison which contained Fipronil.

Millions of eggs are feared to have been tainted with traces of the "potentially harmful" pesticide Fipronil which the World Health Organisation says is moderately toxic. "If we find something then we can use this to let other countries know". Any remaining meat has been destroyed while tests are ongoing on the pâté, which have been removed from sale. The eggs were seized Wednesday and the state agency said it would continue to monitor the situation.

The FSA insisted the recalls - which included Sainsbury and Asda salads - were not issued on food safety concerns, but because fipronil is banned from use on food-producing animals.

The Dutch and Belgian authorities are raiding several addresses in both countries on Thursday as part of the investigation into at numerous poultry farms and their eggs.

Dutch police arrested two men.

It insisted there is "no need" for people to stop eating eggs.

In Britain, the Food Standards Agency said it had found more eggs than previously believed had entered the food chain, mainly through processed food. Eight countries - Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, Britain and France, and now recently Luxembourg - are the nations so far who have been affected, as eggs discovered on supermarket shelves across major markets have been found to contain Fipronil. No amount of that bunch was sold on the Romanian market.

But Van Lint, inspector-general of the Dutch food and consumer product safety watchdog, was adamant: "The reproach that we knew in November 2016 about Fipronil in eggs is wrong", he said.

"This is just the latest of a number of food safety issues connected to eggs produced outside of the United Kingdom in recent years".

Authorities suspect Belgian company Poultry Vision of producing a fipronil-laced treatment created to kill mites in chickens.

The investigation "focused on the Dutch company that allegedly used Fipronil, a Belgian supplier as well as a Dutch company that colluded with the Belgian supplier", according to the prosecutor. She said that all the farms investigated for contamination had used the same company to treat their birds. It's alleged Belgian authorities were alerted in June, and the Dutch even earlier.
