Macsween of Edinburgh Ltd. are recalling various products due to inadequate procedures to control Clostridium botulinum

Food Standards Scotland has today (14 July 2017) issued a Product Recall Information Notice for Macsween of Edinburgh Ltd. The food business is acting responsibly and are voluntarily recalling various products due to inadequate procedures to control Clostridium botulinum. 
 
We will continue to work with the food business and relevant enforcement authorities. 
 
Clostridium botulinum has not been detected in products and the action taken by the company is purely a precautionary measure at this stage.  Clostridium botulinum may cause a serious form of food poisoning called botulism and our advice to consumers is to not eat the product and return it to the store where it was bought for a full refund.
