Food Allergen Alerts – Check Your Fridge.

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland has issued a warning regarding certain batches of Lidl’s Glensallagh Glazed and Grilled American Style Cajun Shaved Ham, resulting in the Lidl Supermarket chain issuing an urgent recall of the ham, that may be unsafe for some Irish shoppers.


Households across Ireland are being encouraged to check their fridges for the affected item.

The warning comes as gluten has been detected in 3 batches, which was not declared on the label.

This can make the affected 3 batches unsafe for consumers who are allergic or intolerant of cereals containing gluten.

Other popular food items recalled in recent weeks.

A number of other popular food items have been recalled from Lidl, Centra and Dunne’s Stores in recent weeks amid other food safety fears.
Irish shoppers are being asked to ensure that they do not have any of these products stored in their kitchen cupboards, fridges/freezers etc.

These foods include:
“Golden Lily Dried Apricot Seeds”, due to high levels of Hydrocyanic Acid (Cyanide).
“Mars Bounty Ice Cream Bars”, containing the pesticide and sterilizing agent Ethylene oxide.
“Avoca Tomato Kasundi Chutney”, containing Mustard which makes the affected batches unsafe for consumers who are allergic or intolerant of mustard.
“Frozen Jona Red Tilapia Fish”, containing the veterinary medicines malachite green and leucomalachite green.
“Centra King Prawns”, mislabelling with incorrect use-by dates.
“Hao Hao Chicken Flavour Instant Noodles”, due to the presence of the unauthorised pesticide Ethylene Oxide.
“Villani Cacciatore Salami”, infected with Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes.
“Fray Bentos Just Chicken Pie”, containing plastic.
“Afroase Biteku Leaves” containing the pesticide Chlorpyrifos-ethyl.
