FSA stands by claims over Salmonella in Spanish eggs
The UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) has rejected Spanish
claims that the regulator's findings about Salmonella in Spanish eggs were out
of date, inaccurate and commercially driven.
A spokesman for the FSA
reportedly said: â€œWe found what we found and we stand by
"Our finding are backed up by those found by EFSA. Our testing was
conducted on stamped eggs in boxes ready for sale. EFSA were testing for
Salmonella at the actual farms. It makes sense that you find Salmonella in boxed
eggs if the contamination is also found at the farm they came from,â€ an FSA
spokesman said. â€œThe problem with Spanish eggs has been ongoing.â€
