New Zealand recalls Pams plant-based creamy pasta bake

The products have been removed from store shelves and have not been exported

New Zealand Food Safety is supporting Foodstuffs Own Brand in its recall of Pams plant-based creamy pasta bake due to potential contamination with foreign matter (metal). All batches and dates of this product are affected by the recall. The affected product is sold at selected Four Square, Gilmours, New World, Pak’n Save, Trents, and Raeward Fresh stores nationwide. For more information about batch details and photographs of the affected product, visit New Zealand Food Safety’s recall page.

Jenny Bishop, New Zealand Food Safety’s acting deputy director-general, advises, “If you have purchased any of the affected product, do not consume it. It can be returned to the place of purchase for a refund. If you are unable to do this, please discard the product.”

New Zealand Food Safety has not received any notifications of associated injuries. The products have been removed from store shelves and have not been exported. The products under recall were identified through routine testing, and there have been no reports of associated illness. Bishop added, “As is our usual practice, New Zealand Food Safety will work with Pams to understand how the contamination occurred and prevent its recurrence.”
