Message:

Arrabawn Co-op is recalling certain batches of milk that are potentially unsafe due to the presence of Enterobacteriaceae bacteria. Point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in stores supplied with the implicated batches.

Nature Of Danger:

Enterobacteriaceae are a group of bacteria, of which some can be harmful to humans. The test for Enterobacteriaceae is used as an indicator of poor hygiene, process failure and/or post-processing contamination of heat processed foods.  The test itself does not confirm the presence of harmful bacteria.

Action Required:

Inspectors:

PEHOs may be advised directly regarding checks to verify that the implicated batches are recalled from sale. Please notify the FSAI (foodincidents@fsai.ie) of any concerns.

Manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, caterers & retailers:

Retailers are requested to remove the implicated batches from sale and to display a point-of-sale recall notice in stores where the affected batches were sold.

Caterers should not use the implicated batches.

Consumers:

Consumers are advised not to drink the implicated batches of milk. For customer queries, please contact Info@fsai.ie.
