Production allowed to resume at one Russell Hume site

The business will be allowed to resume production and distribution of products to customers but only from their Liverpool site.

 

The other sites cannot restart production until the same assurances are met.

 

Production and distribution was halted at all Russell Hume sites over two weeks ago after FSA became aware of instances of serious non-compliance with food hygiene regulations, following an unannounced inspection of Russell Hume’s Birmingham site on January 12.

Wetherspoons was forced to cancel its steak night on but has since cancelled its contract with Russell Hume and was sourcing its steaks from a range of new suppliers in Britain and Ireland.

 

Russell Hume also supplied companies including Jamie Oliver, Greene King and Marston’s.

 

Compliance


FSA said it was assured food being produced at the site was compliant and FSA staff will remain present during operations.

 

"The lifting of the statutory notice will have no impact on the ongoing FSA and FSS investigation which is continuing and staff for both organisations remain present at sites in England and Scotland," it said.

 

"This decision has been taken on the basis that we are now assured that the food being produced at the Liverpool site complies with the relevant legislation. The action taken has been proportionate and we recognise the potential impact on the business and peoples’ livelihoods.

 

"The FSA and Food Standards Scotland will continue to work with the business to assess the status of the measures which remain in place at the other sites preventing production and distribution."
