No other Peter’s Food Service Ltd batches or products are known to be affected.

The recall comes after some of Britain's biggest supermarkets pulled thousands of egg sandwiches and salads from their shelves amid a mass contamination scare.

Products from Sainsbury's, Morrisons, Waitrose and Asda have been recalled as the Food Standard Agency confirms 700,000 eggs at the centre of the European scandal have been distributed in the UK.

This is much higher than the initial 21,000 first estimated earlier this week.

The contamination scare involves the pesticide Fipronil, which is said to have been used "inappropriately" in cleaning products on Dutch chicken farms.

The products recalled include potato and egg salads, free range egg and spinach snack pots and cheddar ploughman's salad bowls.

"We have now established that more eggs from affected farms than previously identified came to the UK.

"It is very unlikely that these eggs pose a risk to public health, but as Fipronil is unauthorised for use in food-producing animals we have acted with urgency to ensure that consumers are protected."

The products affected are processed foods in which egg is one ingredient among many others, mostly used in sandwich fillings or other chilled foods.

While in some European countries eggs containing Fipronil residues have been sold as fresh eggs, in the UK this is not the case.

Many of the eggs involved were mixed with other eggs which have not come from affected farms so Fipronil residues will be "highly diluted", the FSA says.

"The number of eggs involved is small in proportion to the number of eggs we eat, and it is very unlikely that there is a risk to public health.

"Based on the available evidence there is no need for people to change the way they consume or cook eggs.

"However, Fipronil is not legally allowed for use near food-producing animals and it shouldn’t be there."
