Dioxin load in organic eggs? As a precaution, the Lidl supermarket takes all organic eggs off the shelves.

(07.05.2010) Of all things, organic eggs are suspected to be contaminated with dioxin. Because elevated levels of dioxins were measured in the chicken feed, the supermarket chain "Lidl" takes all organic eggs out of the range as a precaution. The reason for this could be the following: Ukraine contains dioxin-contaminated maize, which was sold by a Dutch dealer to organic farms. This could cause the dioxin to end up in the chicken feed. The product was sold throughout Europe between December 2009 and February 2010.

The health authorities in Lower Saxony and North Rhine-Westphalia are meanwhile examining chicken feed and eggs from the organic poultry farms. A spokeswoman for the Lower Saxony State Office for Consumer Protection in Oldenburg confirmed that an increased dioxin value was found in two out of thirteen feed samples in Lower Saxony. In egg samples from twelve examined organic farms, the dioxin load hours were clearly too high for two samples.

Corresponding investigations are also carried out in North Rhine-Westphalia. So far, however, no precise knowledge of this has become known. Final results can only be expected in the middle of next week, said a spokeswoman for the consumer protection office. However, the discounter Lidl plays it safe and takes all organic eggs from the range nationwide until clear results are known. (sb)
