Sausages recalled after warning over plastic contamination

Sausages manufactured by Welsh butchery firm Douglas Willis are among the meat products being recalled as a precaution because of a warning they may contain small pieces of hard plastic.

 The pork products – pork & leek, and pork thick sausage – are among other meats, such as burgers and venison sausages that were packed on 20 March with a use by date of 29 March.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) issued a recall and said the “products may contain small pieces of hard plastic which could represent a safety risk.”

Advice to customers is the products should not be eaten but should be returned to the store from where they were bought for a full refund.

Douglas Willis said point of sale notices will be displayed in all retail stores selling these products. These notices explain to customers why the products are being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the product.
