German supermarket chain Aldi has recalled eggs as the pesticide scandal continues to rock European food markets.
"Similarly, in early July, a small quantity of liquid pasteurised egg, with a "use-by" date of 20th July, was supplied to a number of food businesses for use in bakery products".
Dutch police have arrested two people suspected of using fipronil.
The U.K.'s food agency on Thursday admitted that more tainted eggs linked to a European food scare have been imported than previously estimated.
More than 700 thousand infected fipronil (insecticide, potentially unsafe for health) chicken eggs were supplied to Britain from the Netherlands, according to new data, the British Agency on standardization of food products.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) considers the insecticide to be "moderately hazardous" and says it can have risky effects on the liver, kidneys and thyroid glands. "Consumers clearly want retailers and food manufacturers to use good quality British ingredients that are produced to high standards of food safety, but in some prepared foods this is not the case".
European Union bodies immediately notified food safety authorities in Britain, France, Sweden and Switzerland after it emerged that eggs contaminated with the insecticide may have entered their territories. Poultry farmers in the Netherlands have alleged that a substance that they bought from a Dutch-based farming company Chickfriend is what has caused introduced Fipronil into the eggs.
"Samples analysed in the Netherlands show traces of fipronil in the eggs, but not as a health hazard", the agency said.
