    Around 700,000 eggs from Dutch farms implicated in a contamination scare have been distributed to Britain, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) has said. Millions have been taken off supermarket shelves. See a full list here.

    Of some irony, the German supermarkets stock only British eggs and poultry etc. unless I am mistaken.

    British supermarkets including Waitrose... appalling. Cost cutting to boost profits at every step. Surprised Tesco isn't on the list.

    I have to be clear here that domestic produce isn't immune from the same problems and just because something is imported doesn't mean it is inferior.

    Well, I never buy sandwiches including eggs or tuna for this reason. Cannot be helped if the mayo contains it... annoying when they can stick a logo on the box and/or state of the ingredients that the chicken/bacon etc. is British, and the sandwiches were made in the UK, only for all the other complimentary ingredients to be cheaply imported. I am sure (speculation) in certain cases the mayonnaise was an import - not the eggs themselves - and to ensure costs are lower there is always a chain of suppliers.

    When more companies are producing something who obviously want a cut and the product is cheaper than fewer, you have to ask big questions as to how the end supermarket can trust their suppliers, when the suppliers own supplier may not be trusted. Didn't similar happen with the horse meat scandal?

    The sandwich meal deals to get people in are made down to a price with the intention people will buy an additional item (chocolate bar, chewing gum etc.) to further boost their profits. The Boots is the best meal deal (price wise) around.

    I am NOT surprised to see Sainsburys listed... although their drink selection was always very limited (unlike Boots for example) their Taste the Difference range of sandwiches (the non-triangle shaped bags) were really nice... and for £3 if coke or ribena is to your taste... and a packet of crisps/fruit bag.... lunch sorted...

    Well, I say nice, before they pulled them... in the last year they forced cheaper ingredients to boost their margins. When people stopped buying them because they tasted awful they withdrew them completely. Now the sandwiches are really bad. Hopefully Sainsburys can get fined. All well saying it was a suppliers fault... but to go from (arguably) the best sandwiches on the high street for such a price point... to be involved in controversy because the business deliberately looked for ways to cut costs and boost margins... doesn't stick. All supermarkets do it, they all understand the concept. Foreign supplies are sought as they undercut local suppliers at a price they cannot achieve and means fewer jobs here (which are likely migrants from Europe but the difference is we don't see those benefits of taxes and spend etc.).
