Vitacress salad withdrawn from Sainsbury's following E.coli outbreak
BAGS of watercress produced by a company in St Mary Bourne have been recalled from Sainsbury’s stores in response to an outbreak of E.coli.
The Food Standards Agency said the move was a “precautionary measure, due to a possible association with an outbreak of E.coli O157 that has made 19 people ill.”
The six products - bagged watercress and salads containing watercress – were all produced by Vitacress, in St Mary Bourne.
The supermarket is advising people not to consume any of the products and to return them to the store they were purchased from for a full refund.
The FSA, Public Health England, and local authorities are continuing their investigations and further information will be provided once it becomes available.
Sainsbury’s has informed the FSA that it is carrying out testing on all of its affected lines, but, as yet, no trace of E.coli has been detected.
