FSA UK – Organic Tofu recall due to a potential risk of botulism

Various batches of vacuum-packed Organic Tofu have been produced with inadequate controlling factors to prevent the growth and toxin production of Clostridium botulinum. This may cause a serious form of food poisoning called botulism. A recall from customers is being carried out as a precautionary measure.

The Engine Shed has started a product recall of the affected batches. Point-of-sale notices have been produced for establishments supplied with affected batches. Products purchased before 25th April 2014 should not be consumed.

No other products are known to be affected.
