Diarrhoea can occasionally be severe enough to require hospital admission. The elderly, infants, and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness.

Action Required:

Manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, caterers & retailers:

Display recall notices at point-of-sale. 


Consumers are advised not to eat the implicated batch, should they have it in their freezer. 
If the pork has already been eaten, cooking should remove the risk. Raw meat should always be handled hygienically when defrosting and preparing it, and also cooked thoroughly before eating it.
