Please find below our statement in response to today's FSA News Alert.
“We are working closely with our local Environmental Health Officer and the Food Standards Agency and will continue to do so.
“As a responsible cheesemaker we carry out regular cleaning, disinfecting and swab testing of our making and ripening rooms. “Since the test that showed a trace of Listeria Monocytogenes in Baronet, we have changed our monthly testing regime to positive release, this means that we test every batch of cheese before it leaves us.
“None of our other cheeses have been affected by this.”
