A food company has been forced to recall some of its haggis and black pudding products after they were caught up in a ‘killer’ food poisoning scare.

The Farmer’s Son, based at Clentrie Farm, Auchtertool, near Edinburgh, issued a recall for its Haggis Bungs, Haggis 4 Slice and Black Pudding 4 Slice products on Saturday.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) confirmed the decision was related to the toxin production of Clostridium botulinum, which could cause a serious form of food poisoning called botulism.

It said: ‘The Farmer’s Son is recalling various products because of concerns over the company’s procedures in place to control Clostridium botulinum.

‘Manufacturing controls that could potentially affect the safety of the products listed could not be demonstrated satisfactorily by the company.

‘The issue relates to controlling factors to prevent the growth and toxin production of Clostridium botulinum.’

The FSA said although Botulinum toxin could cause fatal food poisoning, there was no suggestion it was present in products from The Farmer’s Son.

It advised the public not to eat the products listed below and to return them to the store they were bought from.

The FSA added: ‘The Farmer’s Son is recalling the above products. Point of sale notices will be displayed in all retail stores that are selling these products.

‘No other The Farmer’s Son products are known to be affected.’

The Farmer’s Son products are sold in the UK and abroad.
