Primula Ltd. (UK) is recalling the above Primula Cheese Spreads in tubes as manufacturing controls that could potentially affect the safety of these products could not be demonstrated satisfactorily by the company. A recall from consumers is being carried out as a precautionary measure because one product might contain Clostridium botulinum. Point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in stores supplied with the implicated products.
