Withdrawal of FINN CRISP products due to the possibility of ethylene oxide residues in sesame seeds

Lantmännen withdraws FINN CRISP Multigrain 250g and FINN CRISP Sesame 250g from market because quality control has shown that sesame seeds used as a topping in these products may contain ethylene oxide residues.

The use of ethylene oxide as a component in plant protection products is prohibited in the field of food production in accordance with EU standards.
