Found 10th Aug 2017
Approx 700,000 eggs sent from Dutch farms over to the UK have been recalled, initially it was said to be around 21,000, although that number has obviously now jumped MASSIVELY

"The eggs come from farms implicated in the use of fipronil, used in veterinary products to treat things like ticks and fleas."

The FSA state that it's "Very Unlikely" That the eggs are a risk to human health.
While over in Germany & Holland, millions of eggs have been removed from shelves in ALDI and LIDL

"All major UK retailers stock British Lion shell eggs and tests have shown that there is no risk from British eggs."
