Beeline Food Supplements Recalled – Presence Of Unauthorised Pesticide.

Recall by the Food Safety Authority Of Ireland [FSAI] of Beeline Food Supplements due to the presence of the unauthorised pesticide Ethylene oxide.

Lymphoma and leukaemia are the cancers most frequently reported to be associated with occupational exposure to ethylene oxide. Stomach and breast cancers may also be associated with ethylene oxide exposure.

So the 3 logical questions being asked here are very simple: –

(I) Why are drug companies continuing to use and sell products containing pesticides, knowing they are a serious danger to long term human health?

(2) Is the answer “profit before people”?

(3) Why are they not being prosecuted through the courts?

Last week it was Boots and Tesco Own Brand Food Supplements.
Today, it is batches of Beeline Food Supplements that are being recalled due to the presence of the unauthorised pesticide ethylene oxide.

This pesticide is not authorised for use in foods sold within the European Union.
Although the consumption of the contaminated product does not pose an acute risk to health, there may be health issues if there is continued consumption of ethylene oxide, over a long period of time.

Therefore, exposure to this substance needs to be minimised. Point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in stores supplied with the implicated batches.

The supplement products being recalled are: –

  • Beeline Effervescent Multivitamin + Minerals – Pack size 20 Tablets – Lot Number 012181QY
  • Beeline Vitamin D3 Multivitamin Teenager – Pack size 30 Tablets – Lot Number 012101Q3
