Rodent infestation forces KB Natural Foods recall

By Mike Stones , 19-Feb-2013

KB Natural Foods is recalling three batches of its own-label pre-packaged cashew nuts and almonds because of a rodent infestation.

The company’s packing plant was served with a hygiene emergency prohibition notice after rodents were discovered at its premises. The Food Standards Agency has issued a product recall information notice covering six cashew and almond nut products.

The affected products were sold in packs ranging in size from 150g to 700g.

Point-of-sale notices are being displayed in stores explaining why the products have been recalled.

None of the firm’s other products are affected.
