Food recalls for this week have been notified by Canada, Germany, USA, Luxembourg, Czech Republic, Norway, Sweden, Malta, Ireland, New Zealand and Denmark.
Our recall round-up gallery features pathogens, allergens, foreign body contamination and insect snacks being withdrawn.
Listeria was responsible for a number of recalls including Trader Joe's hummus in the US by Bakkavor Foods USA; in meat in Germany; by Margit Vea / Holli Mølle in Norway and by Fresh Concept in Belgium. SZPI testing in the Czech Republic also led to a recall due to Listeria concerns.
Possible Salmonella in tahini was behind a recall by Dijla & Al-Forat Market in Canada and potentially undercooked chicken was withdrawn in the US by National Steak and Poultry.
Enorm APS withdrew insect snacks as mould was identified on some products in Denmark and aflatoxin levels in dried fruit prompted a recall in Luxembourg.
Undeclared hazelnut in chocolate spread led to a recall in Ireland, Dr Oetker in England withdrew icing as a packaging error meant allergens listed were incorrect and undeclared nuts prompted a recall in Malta of Favorina brand chocolate.
Finally, ICA in Sweden withdrew olives because there is a risk of glass being found in the product.
