Kids, kids, it’s Christmas, who wants stinky ham?

The Australian discount supermarket Franklins has had to recall a small amount of Farmfresh Half Bone in Leg Hams with use by dates between January 24, 2011 and January 29, 2011 inclusive due to an unpleasant odour that persists after opening.

Franklins have yet to determine the cause of the odour as laboratory testing is not able to be completed until after Christmas.
