Bakkavor recently recalled a number of chilled guacamole products due to the possible presence of salmonella.

The food manufacturer said that the chilled guacamole products with 'use by' dates up to and including the 02 July 2016 were recalled as “precautionary measure”​ because the products might contain Salmonella.

The affected products have been supplied to the Co-op, Tesco, Sainsbury's and Waitrose.

Routine testing had shown that salmonella might be present in one of the ingredients.

Product recall notices have been displayed in the retail stores that sell the products, explaining to customers the reason for recall and the actions they can take if they have bought the affected product.

Sykes House Farm

Meanwhile, Sykes House Farm has also recalled some products due to incorrect labelling.

It has recalled both the Yorkshire Outdoor Six Pork Sausages 380g pack and Smiths Beef & Caramelised Onion Burgers 454g pack due to the incorrect sell-by date being placed on the packaging. The sell-by date should have read 25 June 2016 and not 25 July 2016.

Labelling issues

While Country Puddings has been forced to recall its

2 x 120g Chocolate Fudge Puddings sold through EH Booth and Co stores. There is soya in the product which is not mentioned on the label, which it said could “potentially cause a health risk to anyone who suffers an intolerance or allergy to soya.”

A labelling problem has also led to the product recall of Marks and Spencer Skipjack Tuna Fishcakes. The presence of egg was not mentioned on the label and this was a possible risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to eggs.
