Meat products recalled over health concerns

Daylesford has recalled two of its ham products due to the presence of listeria monocytogenes. 

The affected products are its Rosemary & Thyme Roast Ham and Smoked Black Ham, both with ‘use by’ dates of 20 and 25 July.

Symptoms of listeria monocytogenes are similar to that of flu and include high temperature, muscle ache or pain, chills, nausea and diarrhoea. In severe cases, it can even lead to meningitis. People over the age of 65, pregnant women and their unborn children, as well as babies less than one month old and those with weakened immune systems can be more vulnerable than others.

It has been advised not to eat the product if it has been purchased but instead return it to the store of purchase for a full refund.

A point-of-sale notice from Daylesford said: “During routine laboratory analysis of ham production, listeria monocytogenes has been detected in a small number of samples.”

Meanwhile, Forrester Sales Ltd is recalling a batch of Delamere British Hot & Spicy Roast Chicken Wings as the products are undercooked. The chicken has been sold at Home Bargains and Heron Foods.

Again, it has been advised to return the products to the store of purchase for a full refund. The affected product has a use-by date of 9 July.
