Sandwich and wrap supplier Lythan Foods has been forced to recall a variety of its chilled wraps over health and safety fears.
The Freshbite wraps, which are sold by a number of major grocery retailers including B&M Retail and independent retailers, are under scrutiny because of concerns over the control of the dangerous Clostridium botulinum bacteria.
“Manufacturing controls that could potentially affect the safety of the products listed below could not be demonstrated satisfactorily by the company,” the Food Standards Agency said.
“The issue relates to controls to prevent the growth and toxin production of Clostridium botulinum. Botulinum toxin may cause a serious form of food poisoning called botulism and can be fatal.”
The products being recalled are: All Freshbite Chicken Tikka wraps and Freshbite Chicken, Bacon, Mayo Wraps with a ‘Use by’ date up to 22/07/2016.
POS recall notices have also been displayed in all B&M Retail stores and shoppers are being offered a full refund.
