Batches of pre-cooked chicken nuggets have been pulled from Icelandic stores across Ireland today.
According to the Food Safety Authority of Ireland, a number of batches were found to contain an unauthorized pesticide called ethylene oxide.
It is understood that the chemical is not approved for use in foods sold in the European Union.
Products affected by this recall are ready-to-eat, hot and spicy Icelandic chicken breast fillets and « ready-to-eat sweet pepper strips ».
The batches involved can be identified by their dates of use on 12/202021 and 12/21/2021 for 115g cans of hot and spicy, and 12/12/2021 for 115g cans of paprika.
FSAI has reassured customers that ingesting contaminated products will not pose an acute risk to their health.
However, health problems can occur if the chemical is ingested for an extended period of time.
According to a statement from the FSAI, « exposure to this substance should be minimized. »
