If this is in your house, you need to bring it back to the store it was bought in and return it immediately.

Lidl Ireland is recalling batches of one of their most popular products over health concerns.

Their 'Snack Day Sweet Popcorn' has been issued an urgent return because of “an elevated level of tropane alkaloids”.

A message of the FSAI website reads: “Lidl Ireland is recalling the above two batches of Snack Day Sweet Popcorn due to an elevated level of tropane alkaloids.

“The implicated product was on sale in Lidl Ireland stores from 7th May.

“Lidl has issued an in-store notice requesting customers who have bought this product to return it to a Lidl store.”

"The affected product – pack size 200g – has a best before dates of December 30 and December 31, 2018."

At the start of the month, Lidl also recalled two of their most popular products due to allergen fears.

They were being recalled due to a distribution error as the product labels are not in English. Both products contain milk and this may make the food unsafe for consumers who are allergic to or intolerant of milk or constituents of milk.
