2 companies recall products for food safety hazards
The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) has announced that two food products are being recalled as a precaution for potential health and safety hazards.
The companies making the recalls are Newbridge Meats and Lidl for sausages and canned tomatoes respectively.
Newbridge Meats is initiating a recall of a batch of sausage products with batch code S033018 due to the presence of Salmonella.
This may make the implicated batches unsafe to handle and consume.
Consumers who have bought the implicated batches should dispose of the product or return to the place of purchase, the company says.
Meanwhile, Lidl has recalled its ‘Freshona Chopped Tomatoes with Basil’ due to the possible presence of small pieces of plastic.
The product was sold in Lidl stores in Ireland. Lidl is recalling the implicated batch and displaying a point-of-sale recall notice.
Allergy labelling mishap
On a related note, Lidl Ireland is also recalling the above batch of its Vitasia Gyoza Dumplings with Chicken and Pork as the allergens present are not labelled in English.
This may make the batch unsafe for consumers who are allergic or intolerant of these allergens.
