The FSAI said Fipronil is an insecticide which is not permitted for use around food producing animals, while noting that traceability on the eggs from the Netherlands contaminated with Fipronil was continuing.

Millions of fipronil-contaminated eggs have been recalled since the scandal broke.

Millions of eggs and egg-based products have been pulled from European supermarket shelves in at least 11 countries, since the scandal went public August 1.

The KFDA said tests conducted on bread and confectioneries made with European egg products showed no potential harm effects on humans.

Hong Kong's Centre for Food Safety (CFS) said last Friday it found two samples of eggs from the Netherlands to have exceeded local fipronil limits.

It said that any remaining egg products have been removed from sale and that the risk to Irish consumers is "very low".

The owner said his Spanish eggs had already been checked for chemicals, but that the United States and Hong Kong offerings may be "safer".

The EU countries that have received the eggs are the UK, Sweden, Austria, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia and Denmark. So far though no one has been reported as falling sick due to eating contaminated eggs.

"The Veterinary and Food Administration is following the issue closely, and can not exclude that further examination may uncover more imports of fipronil-tainted egg products to Denmark", it said.

Sainsbury's, Morrisons, Asda and Waitrose have withdrawn several products containing eggs - including egg salads and sandwiches - as the UK's exposure to the fipronil egg contamination scandal widens.

A statement by prosecutors said: "The Dutch investigation focused on the Dutch company that allegedly used fipronil, a Belgian supplier, as well as a Dutch company that colluded with the Belgian supplier".

Dutch investigators today arrested two suspects in connection with a probe into the discovery of the chemical in European eggs.

"The number of eggs involved is small in proportion to the number of eggs we eat, and it is very unlikely that there is a risk to public health".

In Germany and Holland, supermarkets Aldi and Lidl have already taken millions of eggs off their shelves, in what Aldi said was a "purely precautionary" measure.
