Batches of Avonmore soup recalled due to possible presence of plastic

As a precautionary measure, Glanbia is recalling two production dates of its Avonmore fresh soup range, the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) has announced.

The implicated soups are being recalled due to the possible presence of small pieces of blue plastic.

In-store notices requesting customers who have bought the implicated batches to return them to the store are being displayed by Dunnes Stores and Tesco Stores, the FSAI added.

Implicated batches include the following flavours packages and best-before dates:
