Two mackerel products are being recalled because of levels of histamine that breach Irish food safety standards.

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) has issued recall notices for both Skellig Bay Mackerel Fillets, with the use by date of 30 June 2017, sold by Aldi Stores Ltd., and Lidl’s Inismara Irish Mackerel Fillets, with a use by date of 2 July 2017 due to elevated levels of histamine.  

Although the affected batches are past their use by dates, FSAI said consumers could still have these products in their freezers as the labels indicate that both are suitable for home freezing. 

Consumers who have the implicated batches are advised not to eat them, said the authority.
