The Ministry of Health has received a food recall notification from Woolworths (South Africa) (Pty) Ltd on some of its products.

The voluntary recall of the foodstuffs regards Woolworth’s branded Smoked Chicken Viennas, Cocktail Chicken Viennas and Halaal Smoked Chicken Viennas products with immediate effect.

The recall is due to the presence of milk proteins in the implicated products.
