Doncaster company responds to meat contamination discovery

We have been informed by a customer that a Halal Lamb burger produced by Paragon Quality Foods Ltd has tested positive for the presence of pork.

Paragon Quality Foods Ltd is a pork free site and has never knowingly bought or handled pork.

We have carried out a full traceability of the product in question and have provided this information to the relevant enforcement authorities.

The public analyst at Doncaster Borough Council has conducted unannounced formal sampling of our products on two occasions, with clear results.
