Status update on Galloway Medium Coloured Grated Cheddar 200g recall – no Listeria monocytogenes present

Following the precautionary recall by Lactalis McLelland of one batch of 200g Galloway Medium Coloured Grated Cheddar packs, with a best before date of 26/8/2019; all testing has now been completed and it has been confirmed that there is no Listeria monocytogenes present in the cheese.

Hugues Meaudre, Group Managing Director for Lactalis McLelland, said: “The initial testing indicated the potential presence of a very low level of Listeria monocytogenes and as consumer safety is our number one priority, we took the decision to implement a precautionary recall of the affected batch while further testing was conducted. The final results now show that the first results were in simple terms a ‘false positive’ and in fact no Listeria monocytogenes was present in the Galloway Grated cheese batch number 9154G53.

We apologise to our customers and consumers for any concern caused by our decision to recall this product, but we will always err on the side of caution where food safety is concerned”. If you have any questions please contact the Galloway Team on 0800 083 4358.
