On January 1, 2021, the Irish Food Safety Authority issued an early warning notification No. 2021.01. Due to excessive aflatoxin, Ireland recalled a batch of dried figs. Product details are as follows:
According to the report, the weight of the product is 200g, which is imported from Spain by Carpios Foods Ltd. The shelf life is until April 2021.
Aflatoxins are one of a group of natural chemicals (mycotoxins) produced by certain molds. They can usually grow on a variety of crops and foods in warm and humid conditions. Mycotoxins can cause a variety of adverse health effects on humans, including cancer (some of which are genetically toxic), kidney and liver damage, gastrointestinal diseases, reproductive diseases or immune system suppression. Mycotoxins are naturally occurring, so their presence in food cannot be completely avoided.
The Irish Food Standards Agency advises consumers not to consume the above batch of products.
