Product withdrawal
Booker has withdrawn Chef's Larder Madras Curry Powder with a 'best before' end date of March 2017 and batch code LEP 048771 as a precautionary measure. This is because salmonella was found during routine testing. Salmonella is a bacterium that can cause food poisoning. The FSA has issued a Product Withdrawal Information Notice.

Prodcut details

The withdrawn product is:

Product: Chef’s Larder Madras Curry Powder

The above product has been distributed to caterer establishments only and Booker has told all its customers to withdraw the product.

About product recalls and withdrawals

If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product).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 FSA 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.
