UAE supermarket chains withdraw certain frozen products
Two UAE supermarket chains have recalled certain frozen products following an outbreak of listeria in different parts of Europe.
Waitrose and Spinneys have withdrawn the items following a mass recall in the UK.
Collette Shannon, Communications Manager of Fine Fare Food Market, which operates the chains in the UAE, shared the details of the products with ARN.
Shannon added that it’s a precautionary measure and customers who have already purchased the products will be offered a full refund.
Listeria is a type of bacteria, which can cause food poisoning and lead to complications in pregnant women and the elderly.
