Chicken, ice cream and more products you need to bin from Tesco, Dunnes and Supervalu after recalls

Baby food, ice cream, curry and chicken are some of the items that you need to throw in the bin as supermarkets issue urgent recalls due to food safety concerns.

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) have issued a number of recalls for specific batches of products sold in major Irish stores. Shoppers have been asked to check the food in their home for the affected items and follow the advice issued.

Stores who sell the impacted products will have point of sale notices in their supermarkets and customers will be provided with a full refund for returning any items affected.

The baby food brand Ella's Kitchen is recalling specific batches of Ella’s Kitchen Banana and Vanilla Bread Pudding. This is due to possible microbiological contamination. The effected batches may contain microbiological contamination and could be unsafe to eat. A distribution list will be emailed to PEHOs in due course. Retailers have been requested to take the effected batches off the shelves and to display a point-of-sale recall notice in stores. Shoppers are warned not to feed the implicated batches to children.

The implicated batches include: L192 and L193; best before date: 04/23

Deluxe Protein Bar Vanilla Almond Flavour (FSAI)

Haagen-Dazs Ice Cream

Implicated batches of Häagen-Dazs ice cream are being recalled due to the detection of 2-chloroethanol in one of the ingredients used in their manufacture. 2-Chloroethanol is a recognised reaction product of ethylene oxide. Ethylene oxide is a pesticide that is not permitted for use in foods sold in the EU but is approved for use by other countries outside the EU.

Although the consumption of the contaminated batches does not pose an acute risk to health, there is an increased risk if there is continued consumption of contaminated food over a long period of time. Therefore, exposure to this substance needs to be minimised.
