REYKJAVIK, 16 February 2007. A number of batches of houmous manufactured by Bakkavör Group in the UK have been recalled. During routine testing, salmonella was discovered in two varieties of houmous manufactured in one of the Group’s factories. The cause is related to a raw material. This incident will have no material effect on Bakkavör Group’s earnings.
