Meat recalled by Morrisons because it could cause meningitis

The supermarket chain Morrisons has recalled a brand of meat because it could cause sickness and even meningitis.

They have recalled packets of 150g ready-to-eat peppered beef slices after the Food Standards Agency said they could be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes.

Listeria monocytogenes can cause flu-like symptoms and in some people can even cause meningitis.

The now-recalled sandwich meat has a use-by date of February 21.

The FSA said: ‘If you have bought the above product, do not eat it. Instead, return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.’

No other Morrisons products are involved.
