Recall of Irish Pork and Bacon Product, 6th December 2008

In case you have not already heard (herd).

. All consumers advised not to consume Irish pork and bacon products at this time, photo / picture / image.

The Government today announced that laboratory results of animal feed and pork fat samples obtained this afternoon by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) confirmed the presence of dioxins.

Consequently, the FSAI is requiring the food industry to recall from the market all Irish pork products produced from pigs slaughtered in Ireland.

This recall involves retailers, the hospitality sector and the Irish pig processing sector. Preliminary evidence indicates that the contamination problem is likely to have started in September 2008.

The FSAI is advising consumers, as a precautionary measure, not to consume Irish pork and bacon products at this time. Investigations involving the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (DAFF) and the FSAI are continuing to determine the extent of the contamination and to identify the processors and products involved.

The FSAI and DAFF will provide updates as information becomes available.
