Is it teething time for your little one?

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) has this weekend shared the news of a food recall of a batch of mussels supplied to a number of stores around the country.

 

The mussels, which were harvested from Roaringwater Bay in County Cork on Monday and Tuesday, were distributed on Wednesday, possibly containing harmful levels of diarrhetic shellfish poisoning toxins (DSP).

 

While the implicated mussels have now been removed from the counters of various retail stores around the country, the FSAI is warning customers who bought mussels this week to check where they were purchased and refrain from eating them.

 

The implicated mussels were available for sale loose from the following outlets:

 

  • Dunnes Stores (some outlets) – use-by date of 21.08.2015
  • SuperValu (some outlets) – mussels sold in 2kg and 5kg bags with use-by date of 22.08.2015
  • Beshoff’s, West Pier, Howth, Co. Dublin – mussels sold in 1kg net bags with use-by date of 20.08.2015

Dr Pamela Byrne of the FSAI listed the symptoms of diarrhetic shellfish poisoning as “diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain which can start between 30 minutes to a few hours after ingestion”.

 

She also urged anyone who may have already eaten the mussels to seek medical advice.
