Müller Wiseman Dairies is recalling a batch of its 300ml pasteurised Double Cream as a precautionary measure due to low levels of Listeria monocytogenes having been detected in the product.

The affected batch constitutes 532 pots which have been distributed around Scotland and the North of England into convenience retailers and directly to consumers via doorstep delivery.
The FSS has issued a Product Information Recall Notice.

This is an isolated incident, and an extensive investigation by Müller Wiseman Dairies’ Quality Team is under way to understand the cause and source. The batch was produced at a small dairy in East Kilbride which produces cream products.
No other Müller Wiseman Dairies products produced at the site are known to be affected. More information can be found at http://www.foodstandards.gov.scot/
