Foods on sale in Norfolk affected by contaminated Dutch egg scare
- Credit: PA
The Food Standards Agency has issued a list of products being withdrawn due to the contamination scare.
They are being removed from the shelves of Sainsburys, Morrisons, Asda and Waitrose - all of which have branches in Norfolk.
It comes as it emerged around 700,000 eggs from Dutch farms implicated in a contamination scare have been distributed to Britain, rather than the 21,000 first estimated.
The FSA said investigations into the Fipronil incident in Europe suggested it was 'very unlikely' that the eggs posed a risk to public health, and products affected in the UK were processed foods in which egg is one ingredient among many others, mostly used in sandwich fillings or other chilled foods.
It said some of the products made from these eggs will have had a short shelf life and will have already been consumed, but some were still within the expiry date and were being withdrawn by the businesses involved.
