Urgent alert recall warning for Southall chilled food manufacturer

An urgent alert notice by the Food Standards Agency has been issued for Southall-based Bread Spread Ltd over chilled and ready to eat foods under its brand names Bread Spread, Orbital Foods and Perfect Bite with a use by date between 10/05/2024 and 18/05/2024.

Anyone who has bought these products is being told not to consume them and should be returned to the place of purchase due to listeria and the danger it poses which can include high temperature, feeling or being sick and diarrhoea.

According to its website, Bread Spread Ltd, based at Balfour Business Centre in Balfour Road, supplies universities, colleges and over 1000 independent retail stores across the UK. The FSA previously issued a recall notice for Bread Spread products containing chicken in July 2020 due to possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.

The latest recall includes sandwiches, wraps, baguettes, twists, french sticks and torpedoes with a range of fillings due to “the detection of listeria monocytogenes in final products.”

In its notification, the FSA said the reason for the recall is due to: “The presence of Listeria monocytogenes in the above products.”

It further added: “Symptoms caused by this organism can be similar to flu and include high temperature, muscle ache or pain, chills, feeling or being sick and diarrhoea. However, in rare cases, the infection can be more severe, causing serious complications, such as meningitis.

“Some people are more vulnerable to listeria infections, including those over 65 years of age, pregnant women and their unborn babies, babies less than one month old and people with weakened immune systems.”
