HELSINKI, Aug. 25 (Xinhua) -- The Finnish customs laboratories have discovered traces of degraded fipronil in egg based products imported to Finland, national broadcaster Yle reported on Friday.
Fipronil contaminated eggs caused a Europe wide scare earlier this summer. Such eggs were not imported to Finland, but the customs started surveillance of egg based food products imported to Finland.
Low level of fiprofen, a degraded form of fipronil, was found in a bakery product and a mayonnaise. The customs did not disclose the country of origin.
As the level was low, Finnish customs defined the products as being in compliance with the ordinances.
