Recently, a large number of eggs imported from the Netherlands have been contaminated by the pesticide fipronil, which has been fermented in Germany. As of the evening of March 3, 12 of the 16 federal states had been involved in the incident. German agriculture minister Schmidt held an emergency crisis meeting with relevant States on the same day to discuss countermeasures.
According to the German Ministry of Agriculture released on the 3rd, the authorities detected fenpuni from eggs imported from Belgium and the Netherlands. Germany has imported at least three million of these contaminated eggs from the Netherlands. The German Ministry of agriculture has asked the relevant federal states to recall the eggs involved.
Fenproni is an insecticide used to kill fleas, ticks and other insects. It is forbidden to use it in the processing of animal products and food transportation in Germany. At present, Belgian and Dutch authorities are investigating the detailed cause of the incident. Several major supermarket chains in Germany have announced an immediate halt to the sale of eggs produced in the Netherlands and accept consumer returns.
German agriculture minister Schmidt told the media that the 'crisis meeting' held on the same day in the form of a conference call was aimed at discussing how to strengthen cooperation between the federal government and local governments in response to the incident. He said the purpose of this cooperation is to effectively promote consumer protection.

After the incident, consumer rights groups began to worry about whether poultry meat was also contaminated. Annabel oelmann, President of the Bremen Center for consumer protection, said it was time to identify the responsible parties as soon as possible and to investigate the extent to which poultry meat products were also at risk from pesticides.
A spokesman for the European Commission stressed on the same day that the farms involved had been locked, the eggs had been sealed and "the situation was under control". (this article is edited and collated by sihai.com, reprinted and noted with source, original link: http://www.4hw.com.cn/life/)
