Food Standards Scotland (FSS) and the Food Standards Agency (FSA) are advising consumers not to eat several pork scratching products purchased since February 2021, which have been linked to Salmonella poisoning. Testing has found a link to 176 reported cases of Salmonella across the UK between September 2020 and 21 August 2021.

Production was voluntarily halted at the factory linked to the outbreak once a possible connection was established in August 2021, and full details of the brands affected are detailed in the recall alert. To reduce the risk of any further illness, consumers should not eat the products listed in the recall alert and should follow the health advice within it.
