Product Recall: Santa Maria UK

15 February 2015

Statement February 23, 2015

Santa Maria recalls 1 more Foodservice product from the UK market as they may contain traces of almonds

Santa Maria Cajun Seasoning 20kg: foodservice product with a best before date of 01.08.2017

No other Discovery or Santa Maria products are known to be affected. 

The decision for the further recall is based on consultations with the FSA (Food Standard Agency in UK) and further analysis of the level of almond protein in the batch of paprika powder in question.

Almond is not declared on the products’ ingredient lists and Santa Maria is advising all those who have an allergy to almonds or other nuts, not to eat or serve them, but return them for a full refund.

Neither Santa Maria nor the supplier of paprika powder handles almonds or nuts in their production facilities and Santa Maria is urgently investigating how the problem occurred.  High quality standards are set for all Santa Maria suppliers and a full investigation of the supply chain has been initiated to ensure procedures are put in place to prevent this from happening again.

Statement February 19, 2015

Updated information to the Santa Maria product recall

Santa Maria has recalled a number of products from the market, immediately after having found traces of undeclared almond protein in laboratory analysis. The undeclared almond protein was detected in one batch of paprika powder produced in Spain. It is not certain that all the recalled products contain traces of almond protein and as we put the highest priority on the health and safety of our consumers, the decision for a broader recall was made.

It is still unknown why traces of almond protein were found in the paprika powder, as neither Santa Maria nor the suppliers of Santa Maria, handle almond or other nuts in production. Santa Maria takes this incident very seriously. We continuously work with product safety and have high quality requirements on our suppliers. After this incident, we have initiated an investigation of the supply chain in order to find out how this could have happened and to prevent this from occurring again.

At the moment, the sourcing team from Santa Maria is working with the Spanish supplier to identify how this could have happened.

Santa Maria has also initiated contact with the Swedish authority, National Food Administration, to raise the question at an EU level. Yesterday, The Swedish National Food Administration has issued a rapid alert to inform all involved European countries.
