Recall of Anchor and Pams Fresh Cream

15 January 2014

The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) informed us that Fonterra Brands had detected the presence of E. coli in samples of fresh cream during routine testing at one dairy processing plant.  As such, Fonterra Brands have voluntarily recalled certain batches of Anchor and Pam’s fresh cream. Testing is currently underway to determine whether the E. coli detected is a pathogenic strain. The affected products have been sold in major supermarkets, food service outlets and dairies throughout the Upper North Island from Northland down to Turangi including Gisborne.

The affected batch numbers are:

Product Batch Number Best Before Date
Pams Cream 500ml 1400684206 21/01/2014
Anchor Cream 500ml 1400684207 21/01/2014
Anchor Cream 300ml 1400684208 21/01/2014
