Which? executive director, Richard Lloyd, said:
“We welcome Waitrose publishing their action plan, in response to our call for all the major supermarkets to show they’re serious about tackling campylobacter.
“We want the remaining three supermarkets to follow suit and publish their commitment to action, with clear time frames, to deal with this potentially fatal bug.”
Notes to editor
- Nearly 30,000 have signed up to our ‘Make Chicken Safe‘ campaign
- As part of our campaign we wrote an open letter to Asda, Co-op, M&S, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Waitrose calling on them to make publicly available plans on how they will tackle campylobacter, with clear timescales for action.
