Further to FSAI food alert 2022.45, some additional corn snacks have been included in the recall and some implicated pack sizes and best before date ranges have been extended. The table below shows all batches that are implicated, with the new information in bold.
The recall is due to the possible presence of tropane alkaloids. Tropane alkaloids are naturally occurring toxins which are present in certain plant species. Adverse effects in humans can include changes in heart rate, decreased salivary and sweat secretion, pupil dilation, dizziness, headache and nausea. Contamination of food can occur if parts (mostly seeds) of tropane alkaloid-containing plant species are unintentionally harvested with agricultural crops.
Point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in stores supplied with the implicated batches.
