Fipronil Pesticide Statement - August 2017

As you may be aware, a number of egg producers in The Netherlands which have been stopped from supplying Eggs for human consumption due to the contamination of Fipronil.
Fipronil is a pesticide which is used to control ticks, lice and fleas in domestic pets however it is prohibited for use on food producing animals and crops in the EU.
I can confirm we have no eggs on site from The Netherlands nor are any Dutch eggs used in any of our other ingredients, including Mayonnaise. Furthermore, I can confirm our site has never processed eggs from the farm X-EN-40155XX identified by the Dutch Food & Product Safety Board (NVWA).
All of our EU suppliers have confirmed that their farms only use approved pest control treatments and we are currently in the process of obtaining up to date pesticide residue testing results from across our supplier base.
Should you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact Sagar.

Avian Influenza and Free Range Labelling Update as of 1st March 2017

Following our initial statement we are now able to provide more information on the outbreak of Avian Influenza (AI) affecting Europe and more specifics regarding labelling of Free Range Products after February 28th 2017.

General information on AI can be found at the links below:

[UK] http://gov.wales/topics/environmentcountryside/ahw... (Wales)
[EU] http://www.nfuonline.com/sectors/poultry/poultry-n...
As of 1st March 2017, Free Range eggs supplied to us may contain eggs from temporarily housed flocks and will therefore be classed as Barn Eggs. Legally, this means we will not be able to make a Free Range claim to any of our products produced from 1st March 2017. Any products supplied before this date can be declared as Free Range.
As of March 1st 2017, all of our Free Range products will carry a second label as shown below*


(*Retail egg packs, 100g & 45g, will carry a smaller sticker reading ‘Barn Eggs’)

There will be no other changes to existing packaging or labels, regardless of whether the hens remain housed or allowed access to external areas.

It is important to remember ‘Public Health England advises that the risk to public health from avian flu is very low and the Food Standards Agency has said there is no food safety risk for UK consumers’.

Avian Influenza Update

Most will be aware of the current Avian Influenza (AI) situation throughout the UK & Europe.

We have been working closely with authorities and our suppliers since late 2016 to ensure we are kept up to date with the latest information and regulations.

General information on AI can be found at the links below:

[UK] https://www.gov.uk/government/news/avian-influenza-bird-flu-in-winter-2016-to-2017

[UK] https://www.gov.uk/government/news/update-on-biosecurity-measures-to-protect-against-avian-flu

[EU] http://www.nfuonline.com/sectors/poultry/poultry-news/avian-influenza-and-free-range-status-whats-goi/


Below is a breakdown of what we currently know about the situation:


Up until the current UK derogation expiry (28/02/17) all of the Free Range eggs we process, and have previously processed, will have been legally laid in accordance to EU legislation and therefore can be marked as Free Range.


What happens after this point is still uncertain and will evolve regularly depending on the spread of AI. It seems increasingly as the next major update to the situation will be towards the end of the month.

We are currently working with our suppliers to establish what level of Free Range eggs we will be able to source following 28/02/17.

It is important to remember ‘Public Health England advises that the risk to public health from avian flu is very low and the Food Standards Agency has said there is no food safety risk for UK consumers’.


For any customers with concerns regarding their supply of Free Range Eggs, please contact Sagar on (0116) 2742822 or email sagar@justegg.co.uk
