In response to another major supermarket publishing its plan to tackle campylobacter, Which? executive director, Richard Lloyd said:
“We welcome Asda publicly committing to tackling campylobacter throughout its supply chain. With only two supermarkets left to publish their action plans, Morrisons and Sainsbury’s now have nowhere to hide.
“We want both retailers to publish detailed plans with firm timescales, setting out exactly what they will to do to protect their customers from campylobacter. The plans must become clear actions that lower levels of this potentially deadly bug.”
