THC is the active ingredient in cannabis that makes users feel high.
Multiple CBD products in Ireland are being recalled due to "unsafe levels" of THC.
The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) issued an alert on Tuesday about the recall, with the affected products consisting of food supplements.
"Consumers should not purchase or consume any of the implicated batches," the FSAI said in a statement.
"The implicated batches of CBD food supplements contain unsafe levels of delta‐9‐tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) based on the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) acute reference dose."
For the list of the affected batches, see the table below.
The FSAI has said distributors are requested to withdraw the products from the market, while retailers are requested to remove the products from sale.
"Food businesses that have sold the implicated batches of the implicated CBD products to consumers must display a point-of-sale notice in-store and on websites if sold online, to inform consumers that the implicated batches of these CBD products are being recalled and the reason why," it added.
