What are we doing about it?
We have removed all stocks from supermarkets, other outlets and distribution. We have informed the relevant authorities who are satisfied with our procedures and reviewed our investigation which they agree has been carried out fully and promptly.
How can I be sure your products are safe?
We make more than 20m jars of Branston pickle each year and it was through our own regular testing that we discovered some of the jars may potentially contain pieces of plastic.
We can confirm that we no longer use ingredients in this type of packaging.
When will products be back in store?
We are already busy making Branston Pickle products and working hard to have them in supermarkets and stores in the coming days.
