You will remember that in June 2017, Mars Ireland recalled a range of its products due to the possible presence of Salmonella.

Mars Ireland are recalling the above specific batch of the 42g Galaxy Smooth Milk bar and Maltesers Fun Size bags.

Consumption of product from the implicated batches could cause salmonellosis. Symptoms can include diarrhoea, stomach cramps, vomiting and fever. There are no reports of illness.

Allergic to, or Intolerant of Walnuts?

Meanwhile earlier this month the Food Safety Authority Of Ireland and Tesco recalled a batch of its Finest Chocolate Cake as some of it had been incorrectly packed with carrot cake. The carrot cake contains walnuts which were undeclared on the label. This may make the batch unsafe for consumers who are allergic to or intolerant of walnuts.
