THE FSAI HAS issued a warning that a spice sold in Ireland could be carrying traces of Salmonella.

The spice is a ground tumeric root that comes in 50g batches.

It is mostly sold in Eastern European food outlets under the name ‘Kurkumawurzel’ and is being recalled by food producer Monolith Mitte Gmbh.

The product originates in Germany and the batches carrying the Salmonella infantis are not safe to eat.

Businesses that sold this particular spice are required to put up ‘point of sale’ notices alerting people to the batch.

The batches that are being recalled have best before dates of 31/12/2016; 28/02/2017 and 31/03/2017.
