Recall of Boots Own Brand Food Supplements

Recall of Boots Own Brand Food Supplements due to Detection of 2-Chloroethanol, a Recognised Reaction Product of Ethylene Oxide.

Boots Ireland, latter who have one retail pharmacy outlet in Thurles Shopping Centre, are recalling batches of the food supplements (Shown hereunder) due to the presence of 2-chloroethanol, which 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 product 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. Point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in all Boots stores, which supplied the implicated batches
