Curry sauce jar poisoning alert

Have your say

The Food Standards Agency is advising South Yorkshire shoppers not to consume specific jars of Loyd Grossman korma sauce because of the risk of botulism poisoning.

Only one jar from the batch is known to have been contaminated with clostridium botulinum bacteria, but the Agency is advising people not to eat products from the batch as a precautionary measure.

The affected batch is the 350g jars of Loyd Grossman korma sauce with a ‘best before’ date of February 2013. The sauce has a batch code of 1218R 07:21.

Anyone with jars from the batch should not eat the contents. No other batches of Loyd Grossman products are thought to be affected.

Two members of the same family who have contracted botulism and eaten from a jar of the batch of sauce have been hospitalised in Scotland.
