McCarrens Withdraws Cooked Ham

McCarren & Co Ltd of Cavan have issued a product withdrawal for certain batches of their cooked ham supplied to the catering trade. The company state that potential processing errors may lead to microbial contamination.

full details including affected batch codes can be found at the FSAI website: http://www.fsai.ie/news_centre/food_alerts/mccarrenHam_withdrawal.html

Although no information appears to be available on the company’s own website: http://www.mccarrenmeats.com/index.html, which would seem somewhat suprising, as it must be a good way of communicating vital information like this to a company’s customers.

Why do product recalls always happen at weekends or just before bank holiday weekends at that?
