This week’s recall roundup from the UK and North America includes sandwiches, microgreens, cake and bread…


In the United Kingdom…

Ewing Seafoods recalled its Organic Smoked Salmon due to contamination with Listeria monocytogenes. Pack sizes of 100g and 200g, and batch code 11823 from Northern Ireland have been recalled.

Carmarthenshire Dairy Products recalled its Boksburg Blue Cheese as it was produced without approval, and so manufacturing processes are unknown.

Clayton Park Bakery recalls bakery products containing barley not mentioned on the label. The list of items includes Brown Batons, Brown Rolls, Large Malted Flake Sub Rolls, Seeded Rolls and small Brown Rolls. James Hall and Co recalled its take away sandwiches also because of undeclared barley.

Diamond Food Sales recalled its frozen Indian mackerel because of the presence of Histamine, which can cause Scombrotoxin poisoning. Symptoms resemble allergic reactions, such as headache, vomiting, diarrhoea and an oral burning sensation. 

Lidl in Ireland recalled its Harvest Basket Potato Croquettes due to allergens not being listed in English, and with the product containing gluten, many individuals would need to be made aware.
