Rosario said the others are Sweden, Britain, Austria, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Denmark and non-EU member Switzerland.

Hong Kong is increasing inspections of eggs imported from Europe, officials said Saturday after some were found to be contaminated with an insecticide in a scandal which has now spread beyond the EU.

European Union trade and agriculture spokesman Daniel Rosario said Friday that farms have also been blocked in France and Germany, and named 13 other countries that have received products from those countries. Goods sold in Hong Kong are also understood to have been affected. However, food control agencies are playing down the risks.

Andriukaitis urged the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany - the countries at the epicentre of the crisis - to stop trading accusations about who is responsible for the scare.

Fipronil can damage the kidney and liver if eaten in large quantities.

The Commission is to hold a meeting with ministers and regulators in September to discuss the issue and its food safety chief has requested countries to stop "blaming and shaming" each other. Further away in Hong Kong, the government's Centre for Food Safety also identified two samples of imported Dutch eggs containing excessive levels of fipronil and asked shops to remove the products.

"We need to work together to draw the necessary lessons and move forward instead".

"We were well aware of a report of the presence of fipronil in the pens of egg-laying hens in November 2016, but there was no indication at the time that fipronil itself was found in the eggs", said Schippers. In this case, it is thought to have been used to combat lice in some chicken farms.

Farah exits grand stage with a silver lining
Farah is due to retire from the track at the end of the month, after the Diamond League final in Zurich, to focus on the marathon. Chelimo fell with four laps to go on the wet track in Wednesday's semifinals but came back and qualified.

Belgian Agriculture Minister Denis Ducarme said in a statement he was "very interested" in having a meeting of ministers from countries affected by the fipronil scandal.

However Belgium itself has been forced to admit that it knew about fipronil in eggs back in June but kept it secret for almost two months because of a criminal investigation.

Fresh discoveries of contaminated eggs have continued daily. Two people have been arrested over the contamination.

The UK food watchdog said about 700,000 eggs had been sent to the country from potentially contaminated Dutch farms, up from an earlier estimate of 21,000.
