Grossman sauce in health scare


The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has advised the public not to consume jars of a Loyd Grossman sauce that may pose a risk of botulism poisoning.

The agency said a batch of jars of Loyd Grossman Korma sauce had been made the subject of a full recall and was being removed from shop shelves. In a statement confirming that two members of the same family had been taken to hospital in Scotland, the FSA said that only one jar from the batch was known to have been contaminated with the bacteria that causes botulism.

It also said that no other variety of Grossman's sauces were believed to have been affected.
