Salmonella outbreak at Cranswick’s Hull poultry factory prompts major product recall

Cranswick Foods has confirmed the presence of Salmonella in a number of its cooked chicken products that are prepared in its poultry factory, in Hull. 

A routine internal inspection had identified the salmonella bacteria at its poultry premises at Benson Park, off Geneva Way at Sutton fields.

As a precautionary measure Cranswick has asked its customers to remove any products from shelves that contain Cranswick’s ready to eat chicken, which had been prepared during the affected time period.

The Food Standards Agency said the recalled products are mainly sandwiches, wraps, salads, and ready to eat chicken products from: Aldi, Amazon, Caffé Nero, Co-op, Costa, Jamie Oliver deli by Shell, M&S, One Stop, Sainsbury’s, Starbucks, Tesco and Waitrose. Certain ready meals with chicken from Co-op have also been recalled.

Cranswick said in a statement: “We are working closely with the Foods Standards Agency and will collaborate with their experts to resolve the matter. We are conducting a thorough investigation into the possible cause of the contamination and the site will remain closed until the investigations are complete.”

“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.”

Cranswick has also confirmed that the Geneva Way site is the only one affected by the salmonella outbreak, for all other facilities production remains normal.
