FSAI Recall Milk From Arrabawn Co-op

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) have advised Arrabawn Co-op, latter headquartered in Nenagh, North Co. Tipperary, to recall certain batches of milk that are potentially unsafe due to the presence of Enterobacteriaceae bacteria.

Nature Of Danger:

Action Required by the FSAI:
Retailers are requested to remove the implicated batches [Approval No. IE 1439EC] immediately from sale and to display a point-of-sale recall notice in stores where the affected batches were sold.

  • Implicated Batches in question are being sold in Aldi, Spar and Mace:
  • Arrabawn Fresh Milk 2.L – Use By Date 26/10
