 Subject:  Ireland and the import of contaminated feed containing unauthorised vitamin B2
 Answer in writing 

Recent published information has revealed that large quantities of unauthorised vitamin B2 (also known as riboflavin 80%), containing viable, genetically modified bacteria engineered to carry antimicrobial resistance genes, had been introduced into the human food chain in Europe via feed additives from a Dutch animal-nutrition supplier, having been imported from China.

Was Ireland one of the countries affected by contaminated feed coming from China that contained unauthorised vitamin B2?
