Lidl Ireland has withdrawn some batches of Crownfield Muesli Bars Hazelnut from sale due to the presence of the pesticide ethylene oxide in the sesame seeds that were used in the product. This pesticide is not authorised for use in foods sold in the EU. Although the consumption of products containing the contaminated sesame seeds does not pose an immediate risk to health, there may be health issues if there is continued consumption of ethylene oxide over a long period of time. Therefore, exposure to this pesticide needs to be minimised.
