Liquid eggs in UK may be affected by dioxins

 

 

The UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) has been informed that following the distribution of affected eggs to the Netherlands, these eggs were mixed with other non-contaminated eggs to make pasteurised liquid egg.

 

This pasteurised liquid egg has been distributed to the UK.

 

The mixing of the eggs will have diluted the levels of dioxins and they are not thought to be a risk to health, according to the agency. The FSA is currently liaising with the industry and will provide further updates as information becomes available.
