Lasalocid drug found in Hens eggs

UK - Traces of lasolocid, which is used to tackle a parasitic stomach illness in chickens, were found in 4.8% of eggs tested in 2002. That could mean the drug was present in around 473m eggs eaten last year. But the Veterinary Residues Committee, which carried out the tests, said its findings did not constitute a risk to human health.
