Chicken tikka sandwiches recalled

Lytham Foods has recalled Taylors of Lytham Chicken Tikka Sandwiches due to the potential threat of salmonella. 

The possible presence is in the tikka powder ingredient, supplied my Catermix which, according to the Food Standards Agency (FSA), was manufactured in unhygienic conditions and failed to comply with the food hygiene regulations.

“Point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in stores selling these products,” said a statement published on the FSA’s website.

“These notices explain to customers why the products are being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the product.”

The FSA advised consumers who have bought the product not to eat it, but to instead return it to the store where it was purchased for a full refund.

Taylors of Lytham’s website claimed that its sandwiches were made using only high-quality ingredients. Lytham Foods’ products are supplied to a number of UK retailers and airlines, as well as foodservice and catering establishments.

This recall follows Easy Eats UK withdrawing chicken tikka products due to similar concerns.
