FSAI issues recall of Cully & Sully ‘Thai Chicken Soup’

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) has issued a recall notice for Cully & Sully 400g ‘Thai Chicken Soup’ due to the possible presence of red plastic packaging.

The FSAI said that point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in stores supplied with the implicated batches.

The soup, which contains ingredients such as coconut milk and jasmine rice is part of the company’s ‘chunky soups’ range.

Cully & Sully, which has its headquarters in Co. Cork was established in 2003 and has branched out from its soup range to broths and risottos.

FSAI actions in 2020

Meanwhile, separately, the FSAI has confirmed that 42 enforcement orders were served on food businesses for breaches in food safety legislation in 2020.

This is a decrease of 67% in comparison to 125 enforcement orders served in 2019, the authority noted.

The drop in numbers has been attributed largely to the impact of Covid-19, “where large numbers of food service businesses were temporarily closed for long periods throughout the year, and is not necessarily due to improved food safety practices”, the organisation said.

The FSAI reiterated the importance of robust food safety management systems and stressed that the legal responsibility lies with food businesses to ensure that the food they sell is compliant with food safety legislation and is safe to eat.
