La Comisión Europea (CE) decidió abrir una investigación para analizar si Bélgica reaccionó tarde en el escándalo de los huevos contaminados con fipronil, un insecticida prohibido para uso alimentario en la Unión Europea.

"Se tomarán todas las medidas necesarias para rastrear la distribución de los huevos de las granjas contaminadas y para realizar el retiro correspondiente en el sector alimentario", añadió.

"La empresa todavía no las habia utilizado" y, por tanto, no entraron en la cadena alimentaria en España, aseguró la portavoz. Las autoridades destruirán el lote completo.

El fipronil está presente en los productos veterinarios utilizados para los animales de compañía contra las pulgas, las garrapatas y los ácaros.

La administración indicó hoy que el uso de fipronil en centros de animales productores de alimentos en Bélgica y Holanda es "inaceptable" para las autoridades danesas. La noticia se hizo pública el 1 de agosto.

La UE insiste en que no hay amenaza para la salud humana, pero la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS) indica que si se ingiere en gran cantidad, el fipronil puede causar daños en los riñones, el hígado y las glándulas tiroides.
