Pâtés and rillettes recalled due to food poisoning fears

A selection of pâtés and rillettes have been recalled by Cornish Charcuterie. The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has warned that consuming the listed products could lead to potentially fatal food poisoning.

It was found that manufacturing controls necessary to prevent clostridium botulinum could not be satisfactorily demonstrated by the company. “The issue relates to controlling factors to prevent the growth and toxin production of clostridium botulinum,” said the FSA. “Botulinum toxin may cause a serious form of food poisoning called botulism and can be fatal.”

A customer recall is currently under way as a precautionary measure. If the products below have been purchased, it has been advised that they are not consumed but instead returned to the store of purchase where a full refund will be issued.
