1 September 2015

A businessman vomiting down a toilet. Image shot 2004. Exact date unknown. A number of supermarkets have recalled products over food poisoning concerns. The Food Standards Agency said Sainsbury's have recalled their SO Organic British Double Cream, Aldi have recalled their McCallums Scottish Double Cream, Iceland have recalled their Double Cream and Müller Wiseman Dairies have recalled their Müller Wiseman Dairies pasteurised Double Cream.

So what's the craic? Well, they said that "low levels of Listeria monocytogenes have been found in a limited number of pots".

An agency spokesperson said: "Listeria monocytogenes can cause food poisoning, especially in vulnerable groups and expectant mothers."

So, if you've bought any of these, you should absolutely not eat them, or you'll be making friends with the toilet more than usual. Return the product to your nearest supermarket and you'll get a full refund. If you're feeling flush, just chuck them in the bin.

The agency spokesman said The Müller Wiseman Dairies product has been sold convenience shops in Scotland and the North of England, so if you've got any bother there, get in touch with Müller Wiseman Dairies [email protected] or 01355 270 629.
