The UK Health Protection Agency has said contaminated Cadbury’s chocolate was the most likely cause of a recent salmonella outbreak.
36 of 56 cases from March to July could be linked to Cadbury products, despite the firm having claimed that traces of salmonella in its products were ‘minute’ and the recent product recall was purely precautionary, with levels being “significantly below the standard that would be any health problem”.
According to the BBC, Cadbury has “has agreed to improve its testing procedures” and says “a cleaning operation is up and running at the plant”.
Call me old fashioned, but as a consumer, I’d kinda assumed that a major chocolate manufacturer would be making a little effort to keep its factories clean anyway…
