Contaminated eggs in Holland?
Eggs that may have been contaminated with dioxins have been sold in the Netherlands.
The story was revealed after the AFP press agency got hold of a memo from the German Agricultural Ministry stating that a batch of 136,000 contaminated eggs was delivered to a company in Barneveld in December.
The eggs came from a food company in the German state of Saxony Anhalt. The sale of food products from this region has been halted as a precaution. The Dutch company which bought the batch of eggs has been informed.
The eggs were classified as low quality and were destined for processing, so would not have been sold directly to consumers. However, they may have been sold to food manufacturers.
