Cork butter recalled due to Listeria fears
The packets of Bandon Co-Op butter with Best-Before dates of 14.09.2019 are being recalled due to the presence of Listeria.

A batch of butter from Bandon Co-Op is being recalled due to the presence of Listeria. 

The implicated batch was distributed to retail shops in County Cork only.

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland said retailers are requested to remove the affected batch from sale and clearly display a point-of-sale recall notice informing customers not to eat the affected batch.

Consumers are advised not to eat the affected batch of Bandon Co-op butter.

Symptoms of Listeria monocytogenes infection can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness.

In rare cases, the infection can be more severe, causing serious complications, such as meningitis. Some people are more vulnerable to Listeria monocytogenes infections, including pregnant women, babies, and people with weakened immune systems, including the elderly. 

The incubation period (time between initial infection and first symptoms appearing) is on average three weeks but can range between three and 70 days.
