Thu, 17 Aug 2017 16:20:44 UT

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — The Latest on the scandal in Europe over eggs, poultry and egg products contaminated with the pesticide Fipronil (all times local): 6:15 p.m. France's government, facing pressure for more transparency amid Europe's egg scandal, has released a list of products pulled from supermarkets because they were made with pesticide-tainted eggs. The Agriculture Ministry said Thursday it has ordered 17 kinds of Dutch-made packaged waffles withdrawn from sale. They were sold under multiple brands by several supermarket chains.

The Latest: Report: Egg scandal suspect denies involvement

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 19:08:48 UT

Dutch media are reporting that a suspect in Europe's contaminated egg scandal is denying involvement and says he tipped off authorities last year about the use of the insecticide Fipronil by two companies believed to be under investigation. Two men arrested on suspicion of involvement in the illegal use of Fipronil to treat lice in laying hens are widely reportedly to be directors of ChickFriend, although Dutch prosecutors haven't released details. The Dutch food safety agency has acknowledged receiving an anonymous tip about the possible use of Fipronil, but said it didn't suggest that the pesticide could have contaminated eggs. Geronimo Branescu, director of the government Veterinary Health and Food Safety Authority, said there was "no suspicion or notification from the EU ... about another lot of eggs tainted" with the pesticide Fipronil. Upper Austria's provincial government says two companies have recalled eggs possibly tainted with Fipronil and food control agents are conducting additional spot checks of eggs for evidence of the insecticide. Anschober says Austria-wide spot checks up until now haven't revealed any traces of the Fipronil in raw eggs destined for grocery store shelves. Denmark's food safety agency says Denmark-based Nordic Egg has imported two tons of scrambled eggs that contained the pesticide Fiprolin. France's agriculture minister says tests on imported eggs contaminated with pesticide show no risk to public health. Travert said test results received overnight from the French food safety agency on affected eggs and egg products showed "the level of contamination does not present a risk for the consumer."

The Latest: Romania seizes eggs imported from Germany

Thu, 10 Aug 2017 17:34:21 UT

The Veterinary Health Authority said in a statement that authorities discovered 1,000 kilograms (2,200 pounds) of eggs before they had reached supermarket shelves. Some eggs were sent back, while others were used in minced meat and luncheon meat. Dutch authorities arrested two men Thursday on suspicion of involvement in the illegal use of the pesticide Fipronil in poultry farms. The agency has issued a list of recalled processed foods including sandwiches and salads in which the eggs were found, but added that many eggs were mixed with other eggs from unaffected farms, so any Fipronil residues would be diluted. Dutch investigators have detained two men suspected of being involved in the illegal use of pesticide at poultry farms that sparked a massive food safety scare in several countries. Though no illnesses have been reported, prosecutors said there is evidence that public health has been threatened by "the delivery or application of the biocide Fipronil in poultry houses in the egg sector." Dutch and Belgian authorities are carrying out raids as part of a criminal investigation into the illegal use of pesticide at poultry farms.
