Supermarket chain Lidl is withdrawing a series
of canned baked beans with pork sausages in tomato
The announcement comes after the British Food Standards Agency
warned people to avoid a certain
batch of so-called Sunnyglade cans. An error in the processing of the product
meant that the contents of some of the cans were undercooked. As a consequence,
there is the potential for these to cause food poisoning, including botulism.
The product, offered in can sizes of 420 grams and being best before July
2008, is sold only in Lidl
stores across the UK. No other batches are understood to be affected.
A refund is given to customers who return the product. The Lidl
supermarkets placed adverts in the national media last
