    Tesco sausages of death?

    Post by Eddie on Sun Aug 20 2017, 13:17

    Yesterday Jan and myself spent the afternoon down the park with three of our grandchildren. On the way home she asked me to pull into a small shopping complex, she wanted to get a few items, including some sausages for today's breakfast. After a very nice full English blow out breakfast, Jan checked out the news on her phone. Good grief she cried, supermarket X flogs sausages that could have  infected thousands.  affraid  Here's the crack, we had just scoffed a half a pack of, you guessed it, Tesco sausages. The thing is, we hardly ever shop at Tesco. The labelling says British Pork, but I'm remembering the horse meat scandal.  Who knows what we are eating these days. Thems the breaks folks.  rofl

    "A leading British supermarket may unwittingly have infected thousands of people with a pig virus that causes liver cirrhosis and neurological damage, say researchers at Public Health England.

    Hepatitis E (HEV) is transmitted by sausages and pork products from Europe, mainly Holland and Germany. UK pigs do not have the virus strain in question.

    Scientists at PHE, a government agency, have traced the shopping habits of infected people and found that a common factor is consumption of own-brand sausages from “Supermarket X”.

    PHE and the Food Standards Agency (FSA) have refused to name Supermarket X but two separate sources said it was Tesco." affraid

    TESCO latest recalls. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/news/tesco-recall-galaxy-bars-maltesers-quorn-cocktail-sausages-salmonella-fears-supermarket-a7904456.html

    "Supermarket giant Tesco has published a list of a broad range of products it is recalling, including some of its Galaxy and Maltesers chocolates, Quorn cocktail sausages and haggis products, citing health and safety concerns.

    Two batches of Galaxy Milk multipack bars and two batches of Maltesers Teasers are affected due to the potential presence of Salmonella. In June, Mars, which makes Galaxy and Maltesers, confirmed that it was recalling some of its products for fear that eating them could make people sick.

    Tesco said that it was also recalling some of its Clif Builder's Chocolate Mint Protein Bars, various haggis and black pudding of the Macsween of Edinburgh brand, various Peter’s Premier Slices pies, one batch of its Creamy Leek & Bacon Cooking Sauce, some of its Quorn Chilled Cocktail Sausages and some of its Uncle Joe’s Liquorice & Aniseed Extra Strong Mints.

    Jeez, good job most of that crap does not go on our shopping lists. No
