As more and more countries are destroying fipronil contaminated eggs from the Netherlands, Euro commissioner for food safety Vytenis Andriukaitis wants a meeting of European Union ministers and food safety watchdogs to discuss the problem, public broadcaster NOS reports.
The EU countries that have received the eggs are the UK, Sweden, Austria, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia and Denmark - along with non-EU Switzerland, and Hong Kong.
Around 21,000 eggs contaminated with the insecticide fipronil were thought to have been imported into the United Kingdom, but the true figure has now been revealed to be much higher, at 700,000. However, food standards agencies are playing down the risks for anyone who has already eaten the tainted eggs.
The World Health Organization considers fipronil to be moderately toxic and it says very large quantities can cause organ damage. While in some European countries eggs containing Fipronil residues have been sold as fresh eggs, in the United Kingdom this is not the case.
"The Veterinary and Food Administration is following the issue closely, and can not exclude that further examination may uncover more imports of fipronil-tainted egg products to Denmark", it said. "Samples analysed in the Netherlands show traces of fipronil in the eggs, but not as a health hazard", the agency told BBC.
The FSA stressed that the number of eggs that have come to Britain represents 0.007% of the eggs consumed in the United Kingdom every year, making it "very unlikely that there is any risk to public health from consuming these foods".
The scare started in the Netherlands and Belgium and it is thought that disinfectant used in products on chicken farms is at fault.
Two persons have been arrested in the Netherlands over the ongoing contaminated eggs scandal, the Dutch public prosecutor stated on Thursday.

The U.K. raised its estimate of eggs contaminated by the unauthorized pesticide fipronil, with the outbreak believed to have affected some products made by major supermarkets.
It has since emerged Belgian officials knew about the contamination in June, but did not make the information public.
