The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) have recalled the specific batch of Nongshim Shin Kimchi instant noodle soup 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 the contaminated product does not pose an acute risk to health, there may be health issues if there is the continued consumption of ethylene oxide 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 batch.
