Co-op food recall

The convenience store is recalling 2 Herby Pork Loin Medallians.

This is because they contain soya which is not mentioned on the label.

A label error has caused the issue – Asian Style Pork Belly Slices have been incorrectly labelled as Pork Loin Medallions.

The details of the exact item are as follows:

Pack size: 305g

Use by: 28 June 2020

Allergens: Soya

For those who have bought this product, the FSA advise: “If you have bought the above product and have an allergy to soya, do not eat it.

This is not the only food recall issued in recent days, with a popular squirty cheese being the subject to recalls across various supermarkets at the moment.

Tesco, Asda and Sainsbury’s all stock Primula cheese, a popular type of cheese that comes in a tube.

There are fears the products have been contaminated with a bacteria, Clostridium botulinum.

What is Clostridium botulinum?

Clostridium botulinum is a toxic-producing bacteria.

The World Health Organization said: “Botulinum toxins are one of the most lethal substances known.

“Botulinum toxins block nerve functions and can lead to respiratory and muscular paralysis.”

The products can be retuned to the store they were bought at, or customers can contact Primula on 0800 716 551 or [email protected].

Primula’s customer notice reads: “We have found a potential source of Clostridium botulinum in one of are products.

“We are recalling all Primula Cheese tubes, both 100g an 150g.

“We are recalling all of our products because of concerns that this may have affected other products in our range.”
