The above batch of Asian Choice Premium Pangasius Fillets is being recalled due to the presence of the unauthorised pesticide chlorate. Unacceptable levels of chlorates (typically a disinfection by-product) have been detected in the above batch of pangasius (fish) fillets. In the interest of safeguarding consumer health, the FSAI advises against consumption of the implicated batch. Chlorates can potentially interfere with thyroid function and the blood’s ability to absorb oxygen. These effects are unlikely to occur from short-term consumption. Point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in stores supplied with the implicated batch.
