Batch Of Liquid Egg Whites Could Cause Food Poisoning

A sports nutrition brand has issued a recall of one batch of its products after it was found to contain Salmonella.

GoNutrition is pulling all 1,000ml bottles of GoFood Liquid Egg Whites with a best before date of April 8th 2015 from the shelves, after testing found the presence of salmonella in some bottles.

Anybody who has bought the product bearing this best before date, with the lot code 441202.12.05, has been advised to contact GoNutrition by email and return the product to receive a full refund.

Monocore Limited, which distributes the product in the UK, has contacted customers known to have bought the affected batch, and product recall notices are being distributed.

Salmonella is a bacterium that can cause food poisoning, including stomach cramps and diarrhoea. In August, an outbreak of the bug led to 247 cases of illness across the UK, and was traced to a single source of eggs by a Public Health England investigation.

Expert Opinion
It is welcome to see swift action has been taken to remove this product from sale over fears it contains Salmonella as this will help to minimise any potential risk of people being affected by these serious issues.

"Through our work on behalf people who have been affected by Salmonella, most notably those affected by the recent UK-wide outbreak of Salmonella linked to eggs by Public Health England, we have seen first-hand how much of an impact the bacterium can have on the health and wellbeing of victims.

"Such illnesses can leave victims with long-term health issues, from which they may never fully recover. It is vital that everything possible is done to ensure that the cause of the problems related to the GoNutrition liquid egg white product is identified and tackled quickly."
