Maldives has begun checking imported eggs for the presence of insecticide fipronil, after several European countries confirmed the discovery of contaminated eggs.
The scandal involving contaminated eggs spread to 15 EU countries, Switzerland and as far away as Hong Kong on Friday.
Health ministry said necessary steps will be taken after Maldives Food and Drug Authority conducts its checks.
Ministers and food safety chiefs from around the European Union are set to meet on September 26 in a bid to get countries to stop "blaming and shaming" each other over the scare involving the chemical fipronil.
Fipronil is commonly used to get rid of fleas, lice and ticks from animals but is banned by the European Union from use in the food industry.
The EU insists there is no threat to human health, but the World Health Organization (WHO) says that when eaten in large quantities it can harm people's kidneys, liver and thyroid glands.
