E H Booth & Co. Limited is recalling various of their prepared vegetables because they may contain small pieces of sharp metal, which could cause a serious health hazard.

Other E H Booths Recalls

This is not the first time that EH Booths has had to recall some of their products. Last month, they recalled two of their salads due to incorrect allergen information, and Mince Pies due to contamination with pieces of plastic. They had another allergen recall in October, and another one a few weeks prior to that...
