12 December 2014 | 0
The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) today (12 December) advises that Holle Baby Food GmbH Serviceburo is recalling all batches of specific Holle branded and Lebenswert branded baby foods due to the presence of atropine and scopolamine (undesirable plant constituents).
The FSAI is warning people who may have the affected baby foods that they should not feed them to infants/children. Consumption of implicated products may cause short term adverse effects, for example, dilated pupils, change of heart rate, dryness of the mouth, constipation, urinary retention, and flushed skin. The chemicals present will be excreted from the body and therefore there are no long term health effects. If consumers are concerned they should consider seeking medical advice.
All batches of the following products are being recalled:
· Holle Organic Millet Porridge Apple-Pear (pack size: 250g)
· Holle Organic Millet Porridge with Rice (pack size: 250g)
· Holle Organic Milk Porridge Millet (pack size: 250g)

FSAI advises consumers not to eat Belmont Organic Venison
The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) has also advised consumers not to eat any Belmont Organic Venison products which they may have purchased, as these products were cut, minced and wrapped in an unapproved establishment. This unapproved establishment was unsuitable and unhygienic for the purposes of food production.
The FSAI said that all Belmont Organic Venison products are implicated, including those sold at the National Crafts and Design Fair in the RDS (3-7 December 2014).
