The Commission continues to follow the latest developments on fipronil finding in eggs very closely thanks to the Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (RASFF) developped by the EU.

Text:

It is a tool designed to swiftly exchange information between national authorities on health risks related to food and feed.

A member country of the network that identifies a health hazard informs the rest of the system’s network on the product concerned and the measures taken to address the risk. Measures include: withholding, recalling, seizing or rejecting products. This rapid exchange of information allows all RASFF members to check in real time whether they are also affected and if urgent action is needed.
