A massive recall of CBD products has been issued by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland 

A massive recall of CBD products has been issued by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland as they are “unauthorised novel foods”.

In total, 23 different CBD Oil food supplements sold by The CBD Store are subject to withdrawal as they are novel foods which are unauthorised for sale on the EU market.

These different batches of CBD oil constitute all of the products sold by The CBD Store CBD Oil food supplements. Every batch and best-before dates apply to the recall.

The recall includes different strengths and flavours of CBD oil, which according to the box contains no THC, all weighing 30ml. Flavours include bacon, orange and cherry.

Retailers are requested to remove all The CBD Store CBD Oil food supplements from sale, while consumers are advised not to use the implicated food supplements.

Alongside the oil, 500mg and 1000mg Zero THC Capsules sold by The CBD Store were also recalled as they were “unauthorised novel foods”. The full list can be found here.

A novel food is a food or food ingredient that was not available on the EU market to a significant degree before 15 May 1997, according to the FSAI.

The purification or concentration of select components of the hemp plant including the use of certain extraction methods involving solvents, like supercritical CO2 or ethanol, in the production of hemp-derived foods or ingredients may bring them within the scope of the novel food regulation.

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI), allows for the sale of CBD oil if it is extracted by cold pressing, an uncommon method which leads to low-grade oils. This means that some CBD oils and balms are classified as novel foods, while others are not.

The FSAI has been contacted by the Irish Mirror regarding the reason the CBD oil was not authorised for sale on the EU market.
