The UK Food Standards Agency has announced that pasteurised double cream produced by Müller Wiseman Dairies is being recalled by the manufacturer and by three supermarket chains because of the detection of Listeria monocytogenes in “a limited number of pots.”
The recalled cream is sold under the Müller Wiseman brand in 300ml pots with a ‘use by’ date of 2 September and was distributed to convenience stores and direct to consumers by doorstep delivery in Scotland and the North of England.
The associated products recalled by supermarkets are Aldi’s McAllums Scottish Double Cream sold in 300ml pots with a product code 43090, Iceland Double Cream in 284ml pots and Sainsbury’s SO Organic British Double Cream with a batch code 01716184. All three products have a ‘use by’ date of 2 September.
The affected batch of cream was produced at a small dairy in East Kilbride in Scotland and Müller Wiseman Dairies is now investigating the incident to determine the source of the contamination.
