UK – Salmonella finding closes factory and prompts large-scale recall

Food Safety News

A poultry company in England has halted production at one of its sites after finding Salmonella in chicken. Dozens of products have been recalled.

Cranswick said the facility in Hull will remain closed until an investigation into the possible cause of contamination has been completed.

A routine internal inspection identified the presence of Salmonella in some cooked chicken products.

The products are sold as ingredients for sandwiches and meals in UK retailers and food-to-go outlets.

“As a precautionary measure, we have asked our customers to remove any of their products containing our ready to eat chicken produced during the affected period. We are working closely with the Foods Standards Agency and will collaborate with their experts to resolve the matter,” the company said in a statement.

“The safety and quality of every product produced by Cranswick is our number one priority and all necessary protocols will be followed and completed before we restart production.”
