For 2 samples of test slaughtering from 2 farms, the EU maximum level was slighly exceeded (1.07 pg/g fat and 1.51 pg/g fat). It concerns pigs which have been fed with feed with a high
proportion of contaminated feed fat. The pigs currently at these 2 farms will not enter the food chain and the farms remain blocked.
Based on the current official information (18 January 2011), no contaminated food of animal origin has been traded or exported to other Member States and third countries with the exception of the delivery of two batches of potentially contaminated eggs to the Netherlands. Also the meat of 35 pigs from a blocked farm was sent to Poland and Czech Republic before the farm was blocked.
