Ministry of Agriculture, August 16, 2017 11:56 AM

According to information received this afternoon via the European Union’s Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (RASFF), food including eggs contaminated with Fipronil have also been shipped to Hungary. Some frozen, pre-cooked Tamago Ei-Omlett-Block products were shipped to a wholesaler in Budapest. The National Food Chain Safety Office (NFCSO) immediately contacted the company in question, which has taken the necessary action. The food safety authority has ordered the product to be removed from distribution. The targeted testing of products available in Hungary is being continuously performed by the NFCSO. Experts from the authority found traces of Fipronil in four lots of eggs, but at a level that was below the allowed limit and therefore not a danger to health. The lots in question are being officially sealed and the NFCSO is taking the necessary action.
