Westminster City Council has recently discovered traces of pork DNA contained in a Halal-labelled chicken sausage product, a spokesman for catering provider Chartwells said today. The spokesman added:
This product was supplied to Chartwells by butchers Nigel Fredericks from whom we sought and received written assurances that the product was correctly certified as Halal chicken.
Nigel Fredericks has taken full responsibility for this breach of our supply chain and we are conducting our own investigation into how this happened.
We immediately took the precautionary step of withdrawing the product from all sites and have issued unreserved apologies.
