Recall of some Core Powerfoods frozen meals
Core Powerfoods is conducting a recall of some 310g and 350g frozen meals due to a potential
microbial (Salmonella Weltevreden) contamination.
The recall covers its Going Nuts, Deep South Chilli, Muay Thai Meatballs, Holy Meatballs,
Naked Chicken, Seismic Chicken, Old School, and Smokey Mountain Meatball products, with
the best before dates between 5/3/20 and 4/10/20 (inclusive).
The voluntary recall follows advice from Food Standards Australia New Zealand and state
health departments, who are continuing to investigate cases of Salmonella W contamination to
confirm their cause.
Customers should return the product to their place of purchase for a full refund. Any
consumers concerned about their health should seek medical advice.
“We apologize for any inconvenience or distress caused,” said Core Powerfoods director Jake
Richardson. “Our first priority is the health of our customers.” “As soon as we were informed
of a potential link with our product we have acted immediately to conduct a full, voluntary
recall,” Mr Richardson said.
“We are assisting authorities as they attempt to confirm the source of this outbreak and have
placed a temporary halt on production,” he said. Further information about the recall, and
Salmonella W can be found at
