Irish Food Safety Authority Warnings

Allergy Alert Notification:

The Irish Food Safety Authority has confirmed on August 15th 2017 that Supermarket chain Lidl Ireland are recalling three Vemondo ready meals, due to the labels and ingredients being listed as not being in the English language.

(1) The Vemondo Vegan Ready Meal Mushroom & Barley Risotto contains barley, mustard and celery. (2) The Vemondo Vegetable Gnocchi in Spicy Tomato Sauce contains wheat and milk, while the Vemondo Vegetable Curry with Polenta, contains milk and mustard.

The Food Safety Authority state that these products may be a risk to consumers who are allergic to, or intolerant of cereals containing gluten (barley and wheat), milk, mustard and celery and or their constituents.

 

Elevated Levels of Histamine:

The Irish Food Safety Authority recently also have confirmed (On July 28th 2017) that Lidl Ireland have recalled Inismara Irish Mackerel Fillets, (pack size: 300g, approval number: IE CK 0086 EC ), due to elevated levels of histamine.

[Histamine is an organic nitrogenous compound involved in local immune responses as well as regulating physiological function in the gut and acting as a neurotransmitter for the uterus.]

Although the affected batch is already past its ‘use by date’, consumers may have this effected batch no stored in their freezers, since the label indicates that the product is suitable for home freezing. Consumers who have the aforementioned implicated batch kept frozen at home, are advised not to eat it.

Confusing in this case is the fact that Inismara Irish Mackerel Fillets are labelled in the Irish Food Safety Authorities report as “Country Of Origin: Unknown.

It appears that there is no ‘farm to fork’ traceability with Mackerel Fillets.
