Published:  08 September, 2015

Supermarket chain Morrisons has recalled its Savers Cooked Ham product amid food poisoning fears. 

Concerns over the food containing listeria monocytogenes has led to a nation-wide recall, with customers being urged to return the ham in order to receive a refund.

“There is a possibility that this product may pose a microbiological risk if consumed,” the recall poster said. “We advise anyone who has purchased this product not to consume it and return it to their nearest store for a refund. No other products or date codes are affected.”

The Food Standards Agency has offered advice to customers on their website: “If you have bought this product, do not eat it. Instead, return it to your nearest Morrisons store for a full refund.”

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Morrisons said: “We routinely test our products to confirm all our safety standards are in place. A low level of listeria monocytogenes was found in some of our Morrisons Savers Cooked Ham 200g. As a precuationary measure we have recalled a batch with a use by date of the 11th September but we do not expect any issues for our customers.”
