Commissione Europea: uova contaminate; è allerta anche in Italia

Ovoprodotti sequestrati per fipronil Commissione Europea: uova contaminate; è allerta anche in Italia
Sveva Terracina | 12 Agosto, 2017, 15:23

Il caso delle uova contaminate con il Fipronil riguarda anche l'Italia.

Nonostante tutto Mina Andreeva, portavoce della Commissione, fa sapere che il sistema di controllo dei prodotti agricoli dell'Unione Europa è più che efficiente.

Gli arrestati dirigono la società olandese Chickfriend, l'azienda al centro dello scandalo Fipronil, e sono accusati di aver minacciato la salute pubblica a seguito dell'uso di un pesticida proibito.

A diffondere il panico sono le esportazioni: 15 risultano essere i Paesi coinvolti, tra i quali figurano anche territori fuori dall'UE, come Hong Kong e la Svizzera. Per fortuna in altre nazioni come la Francia e il Regno Unito le quantità dovrebbero essere più contenute.

Uova contaminate da Fipronil continuano a susseguirsi novità e aggiornamenti da parte dei tanti attori interessati e con la domanda che continua a rimanere senza risposta o con parziali risposte diverse: In Italia sono state vendute queste uova o sono in vendita sia direttamente che in prodotti derivati che le usano? La conferma è arrivata dal Ministero della Salute che ha cercato di far chiarezza sulla situazione. Grazie alla produzione nazionale di 12,9 miliardi di pezzi l'Italia sarebbe praticamente autosufficiente per il consumo di uova. Allerta anche in Gran Bretagna, dove sono state importate circa 700.000 uova contenenti tracce di Fipronil.

Le perdite legate allo scandalo delle uova contaminate sono valutate a decine di milioni.


Generalmente utilizzato nella pratica veterinaria come insetticida di seconda generazione contro pulci, pidocchi, acari e zecche e parassiti in genere, ne è vietato l'uso negli animali destinati alla catena alimentare. Lo ha detto all'Agi Patrizia Laurenti docente di igiene all'Universita' Cattolica del Sacro Cuore di Roma. Coldiretti sottolinea quindi la necessità di considerare anche i derivati delle uova usati a livello industriale e gli alimenti realizzati con le uova a rischio.

Allarme Fipronil, l'insetticida delle uova 'tossiche'.

Nello specifico si tratterebbe di uova contaminate con fipronil, un insetticida moderatamente tossico per l'uomo. "In caso di assunzione a dosi elevate - specifica Laurenti - si può parlare di tossicità acuta e quindi si può arrivare all'avvelenamento". All'inizio i funzionari avevano infatti dichiarato che non c'era alcun pericolo per la salute.

"Nausea e vomito, ad esempio", ha riferito Laurenti. Una volta terminata l'esposizione alla sostanza i sintomi sono reversibili. Come ha spiegato il ministro dell'Agricoltura, Stéphane Travert, le uova sono state immesse sul mercato ad aprile e una prima partita è stata consumata senza impatti sulla salute.

Fipronil, l'insetticida delle uova 'tossiche'. Lo chiarisce una nota del ministero della Salute, dopo l'allerta lanciata dalla Commissione Europea che aveva indicato il nostro paese fra quelli che hanno ricevuto uova dalle aziende coinvolte nello scandalo. A darne notizia, creando non poca apprensione tra i consumatori, un portavoce della Commissione europea che comunque ha voluto precisare che questo non significa che l'Italia abbia ricevuto uova contaminate.
