With refrence to the Food Alert put out today by the FSS we would like to outline the position of Errington Cheese.
We take food Safety as our priority and when we were told of the presumptive Ecoli 0157 result we immediately consulted experts in dairy microbiology. The experts told us they were confused and concerned by the testing methodology adopted by the laboratory. We have given careful consideration to this and to the fact that the cheese has been on the market for three weeks now with absolutely no reported incidence of illness. We have arranged for the sample of the same cheese tested by the authorities to be tested and the results will be ready on Monday when we will review the situation and post an update
