Message:

SuperValu is recalling certain batches of its Seed Mix and Sesame Seeds due to the presence of the unauthorised pesticide ethylene oxide.  This pesticide is not authorised for use in foods sold in the EU. Although the consumption of products containing the contaminated sesame seeds does not pose an immediate risk to health, there may be heath issues if there is continued consumption of ethylene oxide over a long period. Therefore, exposure to this substance needs to be minimised. Point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in stores supplied with the implicated batches.
