Have your say

Patchwork Pate has recalled 15 varieties of its pate over fears it could contain the toxin responsible for potentially fatal botulism food poisoning.

The company has been forced into the recall after being unable to prove the effectiveness of its safety procedures in relation to controlling Clostridium botulinum.

The issue relates to controlling factors to prevent the growth and toxin production of the toxin, which if present in food can cause botulism - a form of food poisoning which can be fatal.
