Nature Of Danger:
The implicated batches could cause listeriosis. Listeriosis is a serious disease which can be life threatening, particularly for pregnant women, the elderly and people with a weakened immune system.
Environmental Health Officers (EHOs) are requested, as part of routine inspections, to check businesses to determine if the implicated batches are on sale. If found, EHOs should oversee a recall and ensure a point-of-sale notice is displayed in store. Please notify the FSAI (firstname.lastname@example.org) of the name and address of any suppliers of these batches.
Manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, caterers & retailers:
Businesses that have sold the implicated batches directly to consumers must display a point-of-sale recall notice to inform their customers not to consume these batches. Food business operators that have sold these batches should inform their local EHO.
Consumers are advised not to eat these batches. Instead, return the product to the store from where it was purchased. Consumers who may be feeling unwell should seek medical advice.
