The state of Lower Saxony said it would temporarily quarantine 1,000 farms with egg hens, pigs and turkeys until the Agricultural Ministry could ensure their products were safe for consumption.

The toxic substance, first found last month, is thought to have made its way to Germany’s farms via feed contaminated by a fatty acids mixture from a Dutch distributor.

Officials in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia said on Monday 8,000 egg-laying hens would be culled because they had eaten feed laced with dioxin.
