Sliced Turkey Breast Recalled In UK

The UK Food Standards Agency is advising consumers that one production lot of sliced, cooked turkey breast is contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes and has been recalled by Co-operative Group.

The recalled product, which is sold in 125g packs, is labeled as "Co-operative Sliced Cooked Turkey Breast, and has a use-by date of 3 July 2008. Customers are asked to contact the company, toll-free, at 0800 0686 727 for a full refund.

Listeria monocytogenes causes mild illness in most people, but can produce serious illness – even death – in immuno-compromised individuals, the very young, the elderly, and pregnant women.

If you have purchased this product, please contact the manufacturer and follow their instructions. It is never wise to consume a recalled product.
