Bounce Energy Balls recalled over potential listeria risk

Cashew & Pecan Lift and Apple Cinnamon Protein Punch products have been taken off the shelves.

A NUMBER OF Bounce Energy Balls have been recalled due to a food poisoning scare.

The health food products have been recalled “as a precautionary measure” as they may be infected with bacteria that can cause listeria, the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) says.

“As a precautionary measure, Bounce Food Limited is recalling batches of its Cashew & Pecan Vitality Lift Energy Balls and its Apple & Cinnamon Protein Punch Energy Balls, due to the possible presence of Listeria monocytogenes,” the FSAI said on its website.

The affected products, which come from the UK, are Cashew & Pecan Lift with best before date ranges from 29/08/2016 to 15/02/2017 and Apple Cinnamon Protein Punch with best before date ranges from 28/08/2016 to 12/03/2017.

Recall notices will be displayed in all stores which were supplied with the affected batches, the FSAI said.

Listeria poisoning can seriously affect older people, very young children and those whose defences are weakened due to a lowered immune system. In pregnant women, the infection can result in miscarriage, premature delivery, stillbirth or serious infection of the newborn.
