Recall of Liga Original Due to Possible Choking Risk

The FSAI has issued a food alert to confirm that as a precautionary measure, the distributor, Jacob Fruitfield Food Group, is recalling all Liga Original from the Irish market because the biscuits have been found to take too long to soften in the mouth. This could possibly cause choking or discomfort in babies under 9 months of age if they are fed the biscuits dry. There is no safety concern if the biscuits are first mixed with liquid, such as milk or fruit juice. The manufacturer, Kraft, has advised that the product is safe to feed to babies aged over 9 months either as a dry biscuit or mixed with a liquid.

This recall is part of a European initiative by Kraft, who will change the feeding instructions on the pack in relation to feeding babies under 9 months. There are no risks for babies who have already consumed the product. No other Liga products are affected.

Fipronil - follow up monitoring published

EFSA has published its analysis of food data collected following the widespread detection of fipronil residues in eggs last summer. Member States submitted to EFSA the results of more than 5,000 samples of eggs and chicken collected between 1 September and 30 November 2017. The samples were analysed for fipronil and other active substances specified by the European Commission. The analysis showed that 742 of the samples contained residues in quantities exceeding legal limits, almost all related to fipronil. The majority of exceedances were found in suspect samples – those derived from products or producers where illegal use was known or assumed.
