Around 700,000 affected eggs could have been shipped to the United Kingdom, but the Food Standards Agency (FSA) said it was very unlikely that there was a risk to public health.

Millions of eggs are feared to have been tainted with traces of the "potentially harmful" pesticide Fipronil which the World Health Organisation says is moderately toxic.
