Guacamole packets recalled

Households have been warned of the possible presence of salmonella in Tesco and Waitrose guacamole packets imported from the United Kingdom after several products were withdrawn.

The products withdrawn include Tesco's 163g guacamole packets and Waitrose 200g guacamole, 200g reduced fat guacamole and 240g dip Tex-Mex trio.

The packets affected have sell-by dates up to and including July 2.

A spokeswoman for the Ministry of Health and Seniors: “The ministry is advising the public about recalled guacamole from the United Kingdom due to the possible presence of local retailers selling Tesco and Waitrose brands and any unsold product has been returned by them.

“However products already sold to consumers may still be in refrigerators across the island.

“Anyone who may have consumed packaged guacamole from the UK and is feeling unwell is advised to seek medical advice immediately. “Recalled foods found with matching identification should be disposed of or returned to the retailer for disposal and a refund.”
