Pork from the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland should not be eaten due to contamination fears, the Food Standards Agency has said.
The advice follows the Irish government’s recall of pork products made in the Republic since September.
Dioxins were found in pigs thought to have eaten contaminated feed on 56 farms – nine in Northern Ireland.
The UK’s Food Standards Agency said it did not believe at this stage that UK consumers faced any “significant risk”.
The FSA said: “Adverse health effects from eating the affected products are only likely if people are exposed to relatively high levels of this contaminant for long periods.”
