Some 14 tons of contaminated liquid egg that originated from Germany have been imported to Britain but health authorities said the levels of dioxin posed a "very low risk to human health."
"These eggs were mixed with other non-contaminated eggs to make pasteurised liquid egg. This pasteurised liquid egg has been distributed to the UK," said a statement issued by the Food Standards Agency (FSA), DPA reported.
"The mixing of the eggs will have diluted the levels of dioxins and they are not thought to be a risk to health," it added.
The FSA said it was liaising with the industry and would provide further updates on the situation as more information became available.
