    I just happened to notice on the MSN  website a recall of food products, one was cheese from Tescos, one from Asda and another from Lidl’s in Ireland, have to say I can’t remember the exact details as none of them affected us, but they were quite serious for those with certain allergies and the Tescos cheese was found to contain e-coli, very serious. I thought afterwards, how would you know what products are recalled without constantly checking on a site like Google, this problem must happen throughout europe and indeed other countries, so do we check on these sites before going shopping?  It seems a bit of a pain to have to do so, or do we take a chance? I had never really given this much though before now, but its serious stuff really.

    I will say that our local Lidl and Aldi always has any product recall notice on display at the entrance to the store – can’t say fairer than that can you?

    It’s a very good idea, Fitter, as long as you’ve not eaten the recall product before you see the notice! :wacko:

    This is why I finished up in York hospital late last year. A blue cheese made in UK and bought in Selby. Never noticed it was “bad” because it was a coloured cheese. No recall but I finished up with listeria.

    But at least you’ll know what’s been wrong with you if you survive to do the next week’s shopping! ;-)

    Yes you’re right tigre it is serious stuff really but I don’t know what the answer is. You can’t check every time before you go shopping, it just isn’t practical and not everyone can do that anyway. To be honest we really don’t know what we’re eating half the time but when they have to recall something it is a worry. Obviously, there shouldn’t be a scenario for that to be necessary with strict guidelines of health & safety, but in the real world, we all know that things escape through the net.

    I suppose we just have to take pot luck and hope for the best!

    I agree, Fruitcake, it is a worry if you think about it too much.

    I’m sure Gleaner once posted a link showing contaminated food alerts, not found in store, but what had been detected in imported foods, it was incredible the amount of the stuff.

    One of the products were Organic Almonds in Tescos, a certain batch had been contaminated with salmonella, my goodness the price of organic products, just goes to show.

    While I was looking at the Tescos recall site on Google,  I scrolled up to see Durex condoms had been recalled. The reason for this  was the condoms were not passing their stringent shelf-life durability tests as they failed the requirements for burst pressure towards the end of their shelf life. :wacko:

    You’d be a bit worried seeing this recall after using them!!!!!

    Now that IS serious if an unwanted, or at least unplanned, child was the outcome of one of those failing! You would indeed be worried tigre!

    Organic almonds with salmonella? The price you pay for organic thinking it’s better for you!!
