A supermarket’s own brand of beef burgers have been recalled in fears that customers might be struck down with the E.coli bug, just before Christmas.
Sainsbury’s issued an urgent product recall after customers apparently fell ill after eating the Aberdeen British Beef burgers.
Public Health England (PHE) has linked a dozen cases of E.coli to the range and Sainsbury’s have cleared the product from their shelves. All the people that fell ill have all recovered, PHE have said.
The bug has been linked to Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference Aberdeen Angus quarter-pounder burgers, 454g packets, which are sold in the frozen section.
The Food Standards Agency warned shoppers: “If you have bought any of the batches, do not eat them.”
