massive cost of tainted-eggs scareDutch farmers and retailers Monday were counting the costs stemming from the tainted-eggs scandal that swept Europe, saying the total ran into tens of millions of euros as two men at the scandal's center were due to appear in court.While untainted eggs were back on the shelves in many shops across the country, Dutch farmers told AFP they were still dealing with the fallout over eggs that were found to contain the insecticide Fipronil.Millions of eggs have been pulled from supermarket shelves and destroyed across Europe and dozens of poultry farms closed since the discovery of contamination with Fipronil, which can harm human health, was made public on Aug. 1 .Belgium became the first country to officially notify the EU's food safety alert system about the presence of tainted eggs on July 20, followed by the Netherlands and Germany.
