Risk

Manufacturing controls necessary to ensure the safety of the products listed above could not be demonstrated satisfactorily by the product 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 the above product do not eat it. Instead, return it to their store for a full refund.

Action taken by the company

Chatsworth House is recalling the above products. A point-of-sale notice will be displayed in their retail store. These notices explain to customers why the products are being recalled and tells them what to do if they have bought any of the product. Please see the attached notice.

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If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product).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