Contaminated eggs not on Dutch shelves

No eggs contaminated with cancer causing dioxins have found their way onto Dutch supermarket shelves, the food safety body NWA said on Wednesday.

News agency AFP reported earlier that one shipment of 136,000 eggs from a potentially contaminated farm had been bought by a company in Barneveld and that delivery was made on December 3 and 5.
The eggs were destined for the food production industry and the company has been informed of the problems, the NWA said.
It is not clear from media reports if the eggs were contaminated or if they have ended up in the food chain.
