The Irish Food Safety Authority has warned that people are at risk of contracting salmonella if they eat certain products, while others were found to contain metal parts.

Irish consumers are urged not to eat the recalled items.

Here are all the product recalls currently in effect:

digestive biscuits



Tesco biscuits being recalled

The pack size is 160g, while they have a best before date of March 2023.

mars ice cream

A lot of Mars Bounty ice cream bars are being recalled due to the presence of the unauthorized pesticide ethylene oxide.

Ethylene oxide is a pesticide that is not allowed for use in food sold in the EU, but is approved for use in other countries outside the EU.

The FSAI says that while consumption of the contaminated product does not pose an acute health risk, there is an increased risk if ethylene oxide is continued to be consumed in contaminated food over a long period of time.

Therefore, exposure to ethylene oxide should be minimized and recall notices will be displayed at the point of sale in stores supplying the implicated lot.

The recalled items have a lot code 037C3DOE0 and the expiration date is 08/31/2022.

Chicken pie
