UK – UK investigates outbreak linked to mayonnaise; product distributed in Europe – Salmonella Risk

Food Safety News

Authorities in the United Kingdom are investigating a foodborne outbreak linked to avocado oil mayonnaise.

It is suspected to be caused by too low acidity due to a production error leading to absence of vinegar in the product prompting a mould and Salmonella risk.

The outbreak is linked to a recall made this week in the U.K. by The Condiment Company Ltd. of Hunter and Gather Avocado Oil Mayonnaise in 250-gram glass jars.

In the recall notice, the firm, based in the English city of Chichester, said a recipe error occurred, which means the product might contain mould and could be contaminated with Salmonella.
