Recalled Franks Were Purchased – Environmental Health

A portion of the recalled Sarbrett Beef Franks have been sold in the British Virgin Islands, and the Environmental Health Division is asking those who may have purchased the product to be aware.

Acting Chief Environmental Health Officer, Mr. Minchington Israel made the announcement about the recall on 1st August, and noted that at least one establishment here in the Territory has imported the sausage.

In the announcement the Environmental Health Department notified the public that Sarbrett Beef Franks BS (8/1), EST/PLANT NUMBER 8854 is being recalled due to contamination by bone fragments and possibly other extraneous materials.

The Acting Chief Environmental Health Officer announced that the USDA Mark of Inspection product was imported into the Territory by A Value Ltd. of Huntum's Ghut. According to Mr. Israel the Environmental Health Division has already conducted an inspection at A Value Ltd. and verified that the product was indeed received but was sold out to persons unknown.

Therefore the Department is advising persons who purchased the product not to consume any of it, and to return it to the place of purchase or throw it out immediately. Mr. Israel also advised that if anyone is concerned about oral injury or illness associated with the said Sarbrett Beef Franks that they should consult a healthcare provider.
