Investigations continue into the cause of the contamination with Clostridium botulinum of a single jar of Loyd Grossman’s Korma sauce.
Earlier this week the Food Standards Agency confirmed that Premier Foods had recalled one date code of Loyd Grossman’s Korma sauce (350g) due to contamination of a jar with Clostridium botulinum, a bacterium that can cause botulism poisoning.
Investigations carried out to date at the factory and on other jars from this and other batches, have not revealed any contamination. The Food Standards Agency, the Heath Protection Agency and Health Protection Scotland are continuing to investigate and Premier Foods is cooperating fully with these inquiries. Further updates will be provided when there is new information.
Consumers who purchased Loyd Grossman’s Korma sauce, with the batch code 1218R and the ‘best before’ date of February 2013, should not eat the product. For further information about this recall, contact the Premier Foods consumer helpline on 0800 389 8548.
