The Île-de-France regional health agency recommends not consuming eggs from domestic henhouses due to contamination by “persistent organic pollutants”.

Do your neighbors have chickens and generously offer you their eggs? Beware! The Regional Health Agency (ARS) of Île-de-France is warning this Monday, November 20, about the pollution of soil and eggs from domestically raised chickens in Paris and in 410 municipalities in the inner suburbs.

The study carried out by the ARS – which had already issued a non-consumption recommendation last April – confirms the contamination of soils and eggs in domestic henhouses by “persistent organic pollutants” (POPs). Of the 25 henhouses in the region analyzed, only 2 samples correspond to the standards in force to be marketed.

What health risks ?

These pollutants, ingested by hens which peck at the ground all day long, have in particular “a potential endocrine disrupting effect which can trigger chronic diseases and act on the development of reproductive and immune functions”.

The ARS indicates that regular consumption, i.e. several times a week and for several years, of self-produced eggs in private henhouses subjects consumers to “overexposure to pollutants compared to the general population and therefore to an increased risk of developing effects on their health. “

If pregnant women, breastfeeding women and children are particularly exposed, the recommendation applies to the entire population of the 410 municipalities concerned.

Can we still eat self-produced eggs?

The Agency encourages all individual owners of chicken farms, whether located in town or in the countryside, but wishing to consume their eggs, to respect the good practices defined by the General Directorate of Health in the new edition of the “short guide to safe self-consumption”:

  • Give food in a feeder and not directly on the ground;
  • Do not spread ashes (barbecue, fireplace, etc.) in the garden;
  • Choose a diet adapted to the needs of the hens (by seeking advice from professionals).
