Korea has banned the distribution and sale of imported products with processed eggs from Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands, which are convulsed by a contamination scandal.

Raids were conducted at locations linked to Chickfriend, which allegedly used the pesticide, as well as potential suppliers.

"They are suspected of putting public health in danger by supplying and using fipronil in pens containing egg-laying chickens".

The tainted eggs are believed to have originated from farms in the Netherlands.

Nearly a dozen products known to contain those eggs have been recalled from sale as a precaution, though most will have already been consumed.

There are around 700,000 possibly contaminated eggs that have been distributed across the United Kingdom from Dutch and Belgian farms, prompting recalls from four supermarkets.
