Euroversal International/Mithaighar has recalled all of its Mithaighar Sweetened Yoghurt, because it was produced on premises that were served with a Hygiene Emergency Prohibition Order and a Remedial Action Notice by the local authority for that area because of poor food hygiene. The Agency has issued a Food Alert for Information.
Euroversal International/Mithaighar has recalled the product and will display point-of-sale notices in shops that sell the yoghurt, explaining to customers why the product has been recalled and advising that customers shouldn’t eat the yoghurt and should return it to the shop.
The recalled product is:
* Mithaighar Sweetened Yoghurt (Doi)
* All ‘use by’ dates up to and including 7 March 2010
* Pack size: Small, medium, large
No other Euroversal International/Mithaighar products are known to be affected.
If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). 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:
* Food Alerts: for Action
* Food Alerts: for Information
You can get FSA alerts either by email or SMS text. Visit the Get Alerts page at the link below to find out how.
