More products recalled due to Fipronil contamination

The Food Standards Agency has issued a recall on several more products which it has warned are likely to contain Fipronil, the insecticide at the centre of a Dutch egg contamination scare.

The additional products are several liquid egg cartons by Braeforge, liquid egg by Oliver Kay, and pasteurised whole egg by Oliver Kay.

“We continue to trace egg products which might contain Fipronil,” the FSA said. “Today we have updated our withdrawal list with six additional products, which have been distributed to catering outlets.”

The Food Standards Agency and Food Standards Scotland have been meeting with industry to gather all the available information and to set out clearly which products need to be withdrawn. Products will be withdrawn if the amount of implicated egg is more than 15% of the product. Food businesses must comply with this or show that the egg ingredient used is compliant with the EU maximum residue level. 

“This proportionate approach will continue to ensure people are buying food they can trust and that the food industry focus is on withdrawing products that do not meet requirements,” said the FSA.

The full list of withdrawn products can be found on the FSA website.
