Dutch authorities have reported the infected eggs to the European Commission, which oversees the quality of food and feed.

The threat is considered to be serious, the Polish PAP news agency has said.

According to Belgium’s Federal Agency for the Safety of the Food Chain, “several shipments of Polish eggs contaminated with Salmonella” have been sent to seven EU countries, including hundreds of restaurants in Belgium, from "various Dutch suppliers".

In a statement published on Thursday, the agency said that for the time being, “retail businesses have not been affected”.

It added that the infected eggs bear the code "3PL30221 ***" (*** can match any digit). (rg)
