The European Union plans to convene a crisis meeting on the pesticide-infested egg scandal in Vibronil and called on its members to "work together", while the number of affected countries increased to 15 plus Switzerland.
A spokesman for the European executive said the scandal was caused by Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Sweden, Britain, Austria, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and Denmark.
He explained that the Commission will bring these countries on September 26 "to learn the lessons" of this crisis.
The European Commissioner for Health Viténène Andriucaitis announced that the Commission will invite the countries that have suffered the scandal to a meeting immediately after the disclosure of circumstances, according to "AFP".
The scandal began with the withdrawal of a million eggs from German and Dutch shops.
Losses in the sector are estimated at tens of millions of euros, while 160 are still out of work in the Netherlands and another 60 in Belgium.
