The Co-operative recalls salad dressing
The Co-operative is recalling all batches of three types of salad dressing because there may be salmonella in one of the ingredients. Salmonella is a bacterium that can cause food poisoning. The Agency has issued a Product Recall Information Notice.
All batch codes of the following products are being recalled:
- The Co-operative Healthier Choice French Dressing, 250ml
- The Co-operative Thousand Island Dressing, 250ml
- The Co-operative Fresh Caesar Dressing, 150ml
The Co-operative is recalling the affected salad dressing from consumers, and notices in its stores will explain the reason for recall. If you have bought the affected product you can contact The Co-operative customer relations team for a full refund on 0800 0686 727.
No other Co-operative products are known to be affected.
About product withdrawals and recalls
If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). The Food Standards Agency issues Product Withdrawal Information Notices and Product Recall Information Notices to let consumers and local authorities know about problems associated with food. In some cases, a ‘Food Alert for Action’ is issued. This provides local authorities with details of specific action to be taken on behalf of consumers.
You can get FSA alerts about product recall and withdrawals either by email or SMS text. Visit the Get Alerts page at the link towards the bottom of this page to find out how.
