Message:

The above batches of Isola Bio Cuisine Cocco and Isola Bio Easy on Taste are being recalled due to the presence of the unauthorised pesticide ethylene oxide in an ingredient, guar gum. Ethylene oxide is a pesticide that is not permitted for use in foods sold in the EU but is approved for use by other countries outside the EU. Although the consumption of the contaminated product does not pose an acute risk to health, there is an increased risk if there is continued consumption of contaminated food over a long period of time. Therefore, exposure to this substance needs to be minimised. Point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in stores supplied with the implicated batches.
