Errington Cheese Ltd. instigates precautionary recall of Batch E24 of Dunsyre Blue Cheese

9 September 2016  •  Author(s): New Food

Errington Cheese Ltd has instigated a precautionary recall of batch E24 of Dunsyre Blue cheese as it may contain shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC), a type of bacteria that is potentially harmful to health.


The recall follows the tragic case of the death of a child as a result of E. coli in Scotland.

The batch number in question is E24, which has best before dates:

Dunsyre Blue  ‘Best before’ dates: between 18/09/2016 to 18/10/2016

Dunsyre Baby ‘Best before’ dates: between 21/09/2016 to 11/10/2016

Food Standards Scotland (FSS) believes that this precautionary recall is a responsible action by Errington Cheese Ltd that we believe to be in the best interests of consumers to protect them from potential risks to public health. 

This product is mainly supplied to hotels, restaurants, specialist cheese shops and delicatessens. If you have purchased this product with the batch number above or if you have purchased it from a delicatessen and do not have batch information, do not eat it. Instead, return it to either Errington Cheese Ltd or the store from where it was purchased.
