The health ministry said on Friday that the products had never gone on sale in Italy and were flagged by report from France on the European Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (RASFF) on August 8.

According to the Ministry, the seized products were from the only firm on a list involved in the case to have sent goods to Italy in the last three months, adding that there is no evidence that eggs or products containing eggs contaminated with Fipronil, an insecticide, were distributed in Italy.

Italy is among 15 countries to feature on a list of those that received eggs from companies involved in the case, a European Commission spokesperson said on Friday. This does not necessarily mean that infected eggs or products arrived in Italy.
