Chicken products recalled from supermarket shelves due to salmonella cases
According to the Food Standards Agency (FSA), Cranswick Country Foods are recalling several products containing chicken because salmonella has allegedly been found in some of the chicken used to manufacture these products.
Sandwiches, wraps and ready meals sold at Tesco, M&S, Waitrose, Sainsbury’s and Aldi have been recalled as part of the notice. As a precaution, additional products are also being withdrawn whilst investigations continue.
The full list of recalled products can be found on the FSA’s website.
Point-of-sale notices will be displayed in all retail stores that are selling these products. These notices explain to customers why the products are being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the above products.
The FSA’s advice to consumers is to not eat any products listed as part of the notice, but, instead, return them to the store from where they were bought for a full refund.
A statement made by the manufacturer noted that the company is “working closely with the Foods Standards Agency and will collaborate with their experts to resolve the matter.”
It said: “We are conducting a thorough investigation into the possible cause of the contamination and the site will remain closed until the investigations are complete.
“The safety and quality of every product produced by Cranswick is our number one priority and all necessary protocols will be followed and completed before we restart production.”
