ABP temporarily closes Silvercrest plant

ABP has taken the decision to temporarily close down the Silvercrest plant in County Monaghan with immediate effect. This week’s production has not been released from the plant.

The company says its investigations are centring around two third party Continental suppliers and a company statement said: “Following receipt of this evening’s Irish Department of Agriculture results, we believe that we have established the source of the contaminated material to one of these two suppliers.

“Whilst, we are temporarily closing down the entire plant for purposes of expediency, we would like to reiterate that all Burger King® products produced by us are stored separately and manufactured on an independent line. There is no evidence of any contamination of raw material used for the manufacture of any Burger King® products.

“We anticipate that the facility will be closed for several days to complete the sanitation process. During this time, all staff will continue to be paid, and we will be working with the relevant authorities, management and supervisory team to complete our investigation. We will continue to communicate with our customers and suppliers over the coming days.”
