No other Asda products are known to be affected.


Manufacturing controls that could potentially affect the safety of this batch could not be demonstrated satisfactorily. The issue relates to controlling factors to prevent the growth and toxin production of Clostridium botulinum. The botulinum toxin may cause a serious form of food poisoning called botulism. A recall from customers is being carried out as a precautionary measure.


If you have bought this product, do not eat it. Instead, return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund or contact Asda on 0800 952 0101.
