The scandal has caused major political fallout, with neighbours Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany squabbling over who is to blame, and who knew what and when.
It's believed that the insecticide got into the food chain after it was illegally added in Belgium and the Netherlands to a product used to treat poultry for lice, fleas and ticks.
Brussels said the 15 affected EU countries were Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Sweden, Britain, Austria, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and Denmark, along with non-EU Switzerland.
Fifteen EU countries as well as Switzerland and Hong Kong are said to have received eggs contaminated with the insecticide fipronil, according to the European Commission.
According to the BBC, farms were shut down in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and France after authorities found that their eggs contained fipronil - a substance used to kill lice and ticks on animals.
European Commission spokeswoman Mina Andreeva said that "this is not, let's be clear, a crisis meeting" and it is being held next month to give "distance to the events". "We are very concerned about the issue and maintain close contact with the Centre for Food Safety in order to take prompt action accordingly", a company spokesman said.
In France, Agriculture Minister Stephane Travert said that tests on imported eggs contaminated with pesticide show no risk to public health.
"The Centre for Food Safety is now inspecting eggs coming from Europe closely, no matter at the import, or at the retail level", Chan said.
The agency said Thursday the Danish distributor, Danaeg Products, has been ordered to recall the eggs because "the content is illegal" but "not risky".
He praised the European Union alert system, saying: "I am firmly convinced any potential risk identified.by the European Commission will be brought to our attention.and we will have a precise and rapid intervention".
"Food safety is Wellcome's first priority".
"Information needs to be shared between (EU) member states without delay".
He said the eggs came from the Netherlands and were delivered by a German company.
AVA said Singapore's egg supply comes from local and Malaysian hen egg farms.
He said the eggs would either be destroyed or returned to the producer.style="text-align: center;"
