IFA says Irish eggs are safe to eat

Irish farmers are assuring customers that Irish eggs are not affected by the current health scare sweeping Europe.

The EU has called for an urgent summit after revelations that eggs contaminated with insecticide in the Netherlands, have been found in 15 EU countries.

It’s the biggest food scare to hit Europe since the horsemeat labelling scandal in 2013.

IFA National Poultry chairperson Nigel Reneghan says Irish eggs are perfectly safe.
