Food Quality News reports that a spokesperson from the Food Standards Agency has said that no confirmed cause of the family outbreak from the Lloyd Grossman Korma sauce, produced by Premier Foods, has yet been found. Investigations are ongoing but it seems to us that this one may slip away. The fact that only one jar was implicated is something of a hindrance to a typical outbreak investigation that looks for common links that may point towards a single mistake or contamination point. It seems perhaps unlikely that it was an overall process error, or further jars would most likely have become contaminated or survival of the organism (if inherited within raw materials) permitted. So it may not necessarily be a HACCP related issue? We wait to see if any more information is released by the FSA.
