LISTERIA: URGENT RECALL FOR POLISH SAUSAGE.............

Herefordshire food safety officers have issued a recall of Sokolow's home black pudding sausage after the Food Standards agency reported high levels of listeria in certain batches. The sausage is a Polish product which is sold under the names Home Black Pudding Sausage and Grill Black Pudding Sausage.

While some distributors have recalled all batches of the sausage, sample results have so far only shown contamination of listeria monocytogenes in certain batches.

Residents of Herefordshire who have bought the sausage are being asked to check the batch details.

Those affected by the recall are:

  • Use by date: October 30 2010 / batch code: 474M0916
  • Use by date: November 11 2010 / batch code: 544B0921
  • Use by date: November 13 2010 / batch codes: 341J0930 and 605B0927
  • Use by date: November 16 2010 / batch code: 3651001
  • Use by date: November 25 2010 / batch code: 375B1006

'The affected product may pose a serious risk to human health,' said environmental health officer Sarah Osborne. 'We are therefore contacting distributors and retailers of food originating in Poland across Herefordshire to determine if they have sold or supplied Sokolow Home Black Pudding Sausage/Grill Black Pudding Sausage. If they have stocks of the relevant batches, they must be withdrawn from sale,.'

Anyone who has bought the sausage with these sell by dates and batch numbers should return them to the shop they bought them from.
