ATTENTION

On Thursday the 9th of March at 11am, LeaderBrand Produce Ltd. was advised that one of its salad product lines tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes bacteria.

Listeria can be harmful to ‘vulnerable’ populations if ingested. The term ‘vulnerable’ refers to children under 5 years of age, adults over 65, pregnant women and people with compromised immune systems.

While the bacteria was only detected in one product line – LeaderBrand Caesar Salad - we have conducted an immediate, voluntary recall of our entire salad product range from the major supermarkets it supplies. Supermarkets include Countdown, New World and Pak’n Save. Full list of products being recalled are listed below.

Consumers are advised not to consume any of the below mentioned salads with the best before date up to and including 19 March 2017. Consumers can dispose of the salad products they have bought or return the products to their place of purchase for a full refund.

Says Richard Burke, LeaderBrand Produce Ltd. CEO: “On the 9th of March, LeaderBrand became aware that one of our products, LeaderBrand Caesar Salad, tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes. While LeaderBrand Caesar Salad is only one of many product lines - and we are confident none of our other products have been affected - we immediately took steps to withdraw all salad products.

“We emphasise that this is an isolated incident and that as a proudly New Zealand owned and operated company, we take the health and safety of our customers very seriously. As things stand, we anticipate being able to supply fresh salad products soon. We thank you for your understanding and apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
