Food Alert For Information on a blue background
Damasgate Wholesale has recalled some batches of Ayyam Zaman Halawa (sesame seed paste halva) due to the presence of salmonella. Salmonella is a bacterium that causes food poisoning. The Agency has issued a Food Alert for Information.
The products being recalled are:
Pack size: 450g
Best before date: 15 November 2010
No other Ayyam Zaman products are known to be affected.
Damasgate Wholesale has contacted all of its customers and requested they remove the affected products from their shelves. The company is in the process of providing retail outlets with point-of-sale notices which will advise consumers of the products recalled.

Food alerts are the FSA's way of letting local authorities and consumers know about problems associated with food and, in some cases, providing details of specific action to be taken. They are issued under two categories:
You can get FSA alerts either by email or SMS text. Visit the Get Alerts page at the link below to find out how.
