Egg scandal   Pasteurised egg mixture
Altogether 570 kilograms of pasteurised egg mixture containing the pesticide Fipronil were used, while 90 kilograms were returned to the supplier, the Public Health Authority (ÚVZ) revealed.

The egg mixture was delivered to the hotels between July 24 and August 14, the SITA newswire reported.

Belgian biscuit maker Lotus Bakeries said it had recalled some of its products in Belgium as they could contain eggs that were contaminated with insecticide fipronil.

Lotus said it withdrew products such as Madeleine cakes and frangipane waffles from supermarket shelves in Belgium as a precautionary measure, after it found traces of fipronil in some products.

“Lotus Bakeries wishes to emphasise that only a few batches are affected. Therefore, all Lotus Bakeries products currently in store comply with the relevant legislation,” the company said in a statement.
