I popped into a W12 Safeway on Friday afternoon and cast a quick glance (as I often do) at the poster listing recalled products. Usually, said food stuffs will number no more than 4 or 5 in length and the overall threat to public health is minimal.

So imagine my shock and awe to see some 6 dozen products on the Safeway recall list. What the fuck happened? Or more to the point, could there been something of interest in the UK papers besides Mourniho-baiting or Prince Charles marrying a horse?

As it turns out, my ignorance is no excuse, though a quick glance at the Safeway poster might’ve saved me a trip to casualty.
