Nature Of Danger:
Caterers should not use the implciated batch.

In some groups, particularly children under 5 years of age and the elderly, the infection can also cause a complication called haemolytic uraemic syndrome (HUS), in which the red blood cells are destroyed and the kidneys fail.
Manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, caterers & retailers:
Retailers are requested to remove the implicated batch from sale and display recall notices at point of sale.
Consumers are advised not to eat the implciated batch.
