Risk

Manufacturing controls that could potentially affect the safety of the products could not be demonstrated satisfactorily by the manufacturer.

The issue relates to controlling factors to prevent the growth and toxin production of Clostridium botulinum. Botulinum toxin may cause a serious form of food poisoning called botulism and can be fatal.  A recall from customers is being carried out as a precautionary measure. 

Our advice to consumers

If you have bought any of the above products, do not eat it. Instead, return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.
