It is thought that fipronil was added to disinfectant used on some chicken farms.
If consumed in large quantities by humans it can damage the kidneys, liver, and thyroid glands.
In a statement, the FSA said: "While in some European countries eggs containing Fipronil residues have been sold as fresh eggs, in the United Kingdom this is not the case".
Denmark is known to be the tenth country who has been affected by the egg scandal with Romania and Luxembourg being the latest ones to report contaminated eggs.
What is being done about it?
Around 700,000 eggs from Dutch farms implicated in a contamination scare have been distributed to Britain, rather than the 21,000 first estimated, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) has said.
The British Free Range Egg Producers Association (BFREPA) is calling on United Kingdom retailers to show the same commitment to using British eggs in products such as sandwiches and salads as they do to sourcing their shelled eggs from Britain.
The eggs at the centre of the scandal have mainly come from the Netherlands, followed by Belgium and Germany.
"Many of the eggs involved were mixed with other eggs which have not come from affected farms so Fipronil residues will be highly diluted". "Our common job and our priority now is to manage the situation, gather information, focus on the analysis and lessons to be learned in a view to improve our system and prevent criminal activity". It is unclear whether the meeting will involve all 28 European Union member states, or only affected countries.
Two arrests have been made after Dutch and Belgium authorities conducted joint raids.
The two suspects are directors of the Dutch company Chickfriend from the village of Barneveld, which is suspected of having delivered illegal treatment against blood lice by using the harmful pesticide Fipronil to poultry holders.
"We would like this meeting to happen with some distance to the events and have as many facts established as possible", European Commission spokeswoman Mina Andreeva told a press conference.
Why have countries been arguing?
In a statement today, the FSAI said that in June, "very small quantities of (contaminated) boiled eggs were supplied to nine catering outlets in Ireland".
Millions of eggs have been pulled from stores in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany, while Britain, France, Sweden and Switzerland have been warned that contaminated eggs might be on their territories.
