Maltesers and Galaxy Bar Batches Recalled Due To Possible Salmonella

Mars Ireland has recalled a batch of Galaxy milk bars and Maltesers Fun Size bags due to possible presence of Salmonella.

In June 2017, Mars Ireland recalled a range of its products due to the possible presence of Salmonella, according to Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI).

Two pallets of Galaxy Smooth Milk bars, 42g, and Maltesers Fun Size bags were on hold with an Irish distributor awaiting to be destroyed but have been accidentally put on the market, the FSAI said.

Consumption of products from the implicated batches could cause salmonellosis. Symptoms can include diarrhoea, stomach cramps, vomiting and fever, however, no reports of illness have emerged so far.

The FSAI is requesting food businesses to remove the affected batch of the two products from sale and clearly display a point-of-sale notice informing customers not to eat them.


Consumers are advised not to eat the specific batches and those who may already have consumed the implicated batches and are feeling unwell should seek medical advice, according to the FSAI.

Environmental Health Officers (EHOs) are requested, as part of routine inspections, to check businesses to determine if the implicated batches are on sale. If found, EHOs should oversee a recall and ensure a point-of-sale notice is displayed in store, the FSAI said.
