Irish Pork Products Health Risk

Any one bought ANY Irish (North or Southern) PORK PRODUCTS....
BBC news has reported that Irish Pork Products should not be consumed if bought after SEPTEMBER this year.  Supermarkets/shops/etc., have been ordered to clear their shelves of all Irish Pork Products.

Pork from the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland should not be eaten at the moment 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.

Yep, heard this on the BBC News this morning although they did say the risk in the UK was minimal.  Let's hope they're right.
Here's an article - hope you don't mind me posting shutter.
