BEIJING: China’s Agriculture ministry reported on Thursday no eggs from Europe have been imported into the nation, leaving no hazard of contamination from a scare sweeping Europe about the use of a potentially harmful insecticide.

In a every month ministry briefing, Jin Fazhong, deputy director at the agricultural excellent and security inspection bureau reported: “There is no hazard of taking in poisoned eggs in China.”

Thousands and thousands of rooster eggs have been pulled from European grocery store shelves as a final result of the scare over the use of the insecticide fipronil, which is forbidden in the food items chain and can bring about organ hurt in individuals.
