Britain to probe risk of contaminated German egg supplies

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.
