The FSAI has issued a series of food alerts, prompting homeowners to check their freezers and cupboards.
Due to concerns about safety and allergens, food safety officials have advised against consuming a number of items. Products from well-known retailers like Tesco, Lidl, Dunnes, and more are among those that are implicated.
People have been urged to discard the contaminated goods rather than consume them. The complete list of recent food recalls and allergen warnings is provided below:
Tesco Southern Fried Chicken Goujons
Tesco Southern Fried Chicken Goujon batches have been recalled due to salmonella concerns. The goods in question have a 360g pack size, batch IDs 23122 and 23123, and a best-before date of 31/05/2024.
Salmonella is typically characterized by diarrhea, which occasionally turns bloody. Fever, headaches, and pains in the abdomen are possible additional symptoms.
Typically, the illness lasts 4 to 7 days. There are times when diarrhea is so severe that hospital treatment is necessary. The serious sickness is more likely to affect the elderly, young children, and people with weakened immune systems.
Wrights of Howth Smoked Salmon
Due to the presence of Listeria monocytogenes, Wrights of Howth is recalling a batch of Oak Smoked Farmed Irish Organic Salmon, with a batch code of 21P and a best-before date of 19/05/2023, the implicated items come in pack sizes of 120g, 140g, 250g, and 350g.
An announcement on the FSAI website states:
“Symptoms of Listeria monocytogenes infection can include mild flu-like symptoms, or gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea. In rare cases, the infection can be more severe, causing serious complications. Some people are more vulnerable to Listeria monocytogenes infections, including pregnant women, babies and people with weakened immune systems, including the elderly.
“The incubation period (time between initial infection and first symptoms appearing) is on average 3 weeks but can range between 3 and 70 days.”
Full Moon Frozen Shrimp
Due to the presence of Vibrio cholera and Vibrio parahaemolyticus, a batch of 2 kg of Full Moon Frozen Shrimp is recalled. The products that are under investigation have the batch code 29936030 and a best-before date of 03/01/2025.
The illness causes stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, fever, headaches, and watery diarrhea that may be bloody or contain mucus flecks. Symptoms typically begin within six to forty-eight hours and linger for three to five days.
However, depending on the Vibrio species, symptoms could linger for up to 3 weeks. The infection can cause severe dehydration in some people, especially children under the age of five, the elderly, and those with underlying medical issues. If this situation is not properly treated, it may be fatal.
Cadbury Chocolate Desserts
Due to the potential presence of Listeria monocytogenes, many batches of Cadbury chocolate treats are being recalled. Some Lidl locations sold the batches that were under investigation.
The moderate flu-like symptoms or gastrointestinal symptoms including nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea can be signs of Listeria monocytogenes infection. Rarely, infections can become more serious and lead to serious problems. Pregnant women, infants, and those with compromised immune systems, such as the elderly, are more prone to Listeria monocytogenes infections than others.
An average of three weeks pass during the incubation period, which can last anywhere between three and seventy days.
The involved batches should not be consumed, consumers are told. Instead, please get in touch with the Müller customer care department in the UK at email@example.com or +44 7354 835 893.
Maggi Instant Noodles
Due to inaccurate labeling, a batch of Maggi Instant Noodles contains peanuts and gluten, making it unsafe for customers who are allergic to or intolerant of either gluten or peanuts.
Gosh Foods and Deli
Gosh Foods and The Deli’s gluten-free goods could come in contact with batches of gluten-containing grains. The products are marked as being free of gluten, however gluten is not identified on the label, making them dangerous for customers who are intolerant or allergic to gluten.
