The repercussions of the egg-white scandal contaminated with insecticide that hit Europe

The repercussions of the scandal of the spread of eggs contaminated with insecticide, which hit Europe and its use in food products for human consumption, is still ongoing as health authorities and supermarkets in several European countries withdrew contaminated eggs to prevent its arrival to consumers, according to the German news agency "dpa".

Aldi, the food retailer, has withdrawn all eggs and stopped selling them at its stores in Germany.

Other stores in Germany, such as "Rivi" and "Edeka", said they would wait and follow up.

Migros, the largest supermarket chain in Switzerland, also said it had withdrawn all imported eggs contaminated with fibronil.

The Swedish authorities announced that eggs contaminated with Vibronil pesticide also arrived in Sweden.

Sweden's Food Control Authority said the European Commission had informed it.

According to the authority, one of the wholesalers issued quantities of eggs contaminated from the Netherlands to Sweden, and they arrived in Swedish territory.

Swedish authorities are now trying to track down polluted eggs in order to stop selling and withdrawing from markets.

Dutch poultry farmers will incur unprecedented losses of at least 10 million euros ($ 11.9 million) due to the pesticide-contaminated eggs scandal, the Dutch Federation of Agriculture and Horticulture said.

The Netherlands produces about 10 billion eggs a year, and exports from 60 to 70 percent of them to Germany in the first place.

The scandal was publicized when high levels of fibronil insecticide were found in eggs coming from Dutch and Belgian farms.

Fibronil is a common ingredient in veterinary products to eliminate fleas, lice and ticks in animals. It is a banned pesticide used on animals that will be used for human consumption. It can cause damage to the liver, thyroid, and kidneys if taken in large quantities.
