A third food manufacturer has recalled products amid an E.coli outbreak which has left 37 people in hospital.

Last night the Food Standards Agency said sandwich maker THIS! is taking the precautionary step of recalling its “Isn’t chicken and bacon wrap” because of possible contamination with E. coli. The wrap is only sold in WH Smith. The manufacturer said no e. coli had been found and that recall was purely precautionary. To contact THIS! email [email protected]

At the end of last week Greencore and Samworth Brothers, major suppliers to UK supermarkets, took a long list of products off the shelves due to the risk.

The announcement comes a week after the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) announced there had been an outbreak of E.coli, with 113 reported cases linked to a “nationally distributed food item”. The FSA said Greencore was recalling products from retailers including Boots, Asda, Co-op, Aldi and Amazon because of “possible contamination with E.coli”.

Darren Whitby, head of incidents at the Food Standards Agency, said: “Sandwich manufacturers are taking a precautionary measure to recall various sandwiches wraps and salads in response to findings from investigations by the Food Standards Agency (FSA), Food Standards Scotland (FSS) and UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA), who are working to identify the cause of an ongoing outbreak caused by shiga toxin-producing E.coli (Stec).”

The possible presence of Shiga toxin-producing E.coli (STEC) in the products listed above can cause severe diarrhoea (including bloody diarrhoea), abdominal pain, and sometimes haemolytic uremic syndrome, (HUS), a serious condition that can lead to kidney failure and can be fatal, said the agency.

It added: “Greencore Group is recalling the above products. Point of sale notices will be displayed where the products were sold. These notices explain to customers why the products are being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the products.

Greencore Group said in a statement: “As a precautionary measure, we have voluntarily recalled a number of sandwiches and wraps due to a potential food safety risk. Greencore adheres to the highest standards of food safety, and we are working closely with the Food Standards Agency and our suppliers to better understand the possible source of any potential issue.”

A Samworth Brothers Manton Wood spokesperson said: “The Food Standards Agency has advised the supplier of a salad ingredient which we use in a small number of products that it should undertake a product withdrawal and recall. Meanwhile, food chain investigations are being carried out, which have not yet reached any conclusions.

“A small number of sandwich and wrap lines that are made at our Manton Wood site are being recalled as a precautionary measure to ensure a high level of health protection for consumers. No other Manton Wood products are affected. If you have bought any of the above products do not eat them. Instead return them to the store from where they were bought for a full refund.”
