Germany – Eggs contaminated with Salmonella recalled in 11 German states

Farming UK 

Eggs contaminated with salmonella have been recalled by the authorities in a number of German states.

According to information on a German Government-run site, a batch of organic eggs has been found to have been infected with salmonella enteritidis.

The recall affects 11 German states and comes after thousands of Dutch eggs were recalled in Germany because of renewed fipronil contamination.

Some 73,000 Dutch eggs were withdrawn from sale in Germany after more fipronil contamination was found in eggs from the Netherlands – a year after the original scandal.

Fipronil has been found on two Dutch farms in the latest scare and the authorities expect that it will be confirmed on a third.
