Leading supermarket chain SuperValu has confirmed it has ordered all stores in the Republic of Ireland to remove Israeli carrots from their shelves.

Despite insisting it has not enforced a boycott of goods from the country, an email instruction was sent to 232 stores last Friday saying the Chantenay variety must not be sold.

A spokeswoman for Supervalu in Northern Ireland said the withdrawal only applied to stores in the Republic of Ireland.
