Morrisons recalls ham product over listeria fears

Supermarket chain Morrisons has recalled its Savers Cooked Ham product amid food poisoning fears. 

Concerns over the food containing listeria monocytogenes has led to a nation-wide recall, with customers being urged to return the ham in order to receive a refund.

“There is a possibility that this product may pose a microbiological risk if consumed,” the recall poster said. “We advise anyone who has purchased this product not to consume it and return it to their nearest store for a refund. No other products or date codes are affected.”

The Food Standards Agency has offered advice to customers on their website: “If you have bought this product, do not eat it. Instead, return it to your nearest Morrisons store for a full refund.”

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Morrisons said: “We routinely test our products to confirm all our safety standards are in place. A low level of listeria monocytogenes was found in some of our Morrisons Savers Cooked Ham 200g. As a precuationary measure we have recalled a batch with a use by date of the 11th September but we do not expect any issues for our customers.”
