Firponil scandal

Culling birds with Fipronil

The TCC group has slaughtered 4.5 million laying hens in Belgium and the Netherlands due to the Fipronil scandal. The eggs that these chickens laid had too high Fipronil content and were therefore unusable for consumption. In three weeks' time, the TCC group killed approximately 1.8 million animals in 14 days in Belgium under the authority of the FASFC. Here were stables of 310,000 animals that had been cleared in less than 24 hours.
