Posting here for traffic, just spotted this on Facebook and thought I should share. Potentially contains the toxin which causes botulism.

I like a bit of that with a bag of hula hoops. Cheers for the heads up. I'll probably still risk it (because it's my favourite Friday night snack) but I'll give the little ones an alternative instead.

Hula hoops you say?? Why have I never tried this!

Bought 4 for my son last week. Only half a tube left shock

I had Primula last night for supper and again in my sandwich for lunch. Been having a mild panic for the last hour since I saw the Food Standards Agency alert on Twitter, as I’ve also got a slightly dodgy tummy tonight. I know the risk is vanishingLy small, but that’s not helping right now. Normally I am incredibly rational, I promise!

Do they still do the prawn flavour? I had it on a cracker in the 90’s, it was lovely but I won’t bother if they’ve changed the flavour.

Ahh, Primula 🦐 🧀 spread. Brings back memories of the early 90’s.

Beef hula hoops with plain cheese flavour squirted in. 👌

Served with cheap fizzy white perry.

Pure class.

I remember my DM squirting this on ritz crackers for my Birthday party ....God I loved it .
Does anyone remember the proper, original Philadelphia in a little silver package ?? Not the tub stuff , the proper crumbly, amazingly dense , cream cheese .....I am a child of the 70s for certain grin

I squirt it straight from the tube into my mouth. I am pregnant. Bugger. Perhaps this is a learning moment for me to think about the slovenly things that I do. Or perhaps I can just switch to a different type of cheese.

@Alittleshortforaspacepooper <sniggers> you’re creating life...slovenliness is allowed grin

@AdoptAdaptImprove try not to worry too much, hope you’re feeling ok 🤞🏻

Botulism doesn't give you a "slightly dodgy tummy" it's a neurotoxin. Blurred vision, breathing difficulties, slurred speach etc.
It's potentially life threatening and very serious. Of all the food borne illnesses you really don't want, botulism is top of the list.

@Weedsnseeds1 nasty illness sad

I reckon they could’ve put a quick headline on the news sites about it, it’s still available to buy on Asda’s site!

I LOVE Primula! I hope they sort it out very soon!

Rubyupbeat Wed 17-Jun-20 06:38:11

We buy it for the dogs. It's a great training and reward treat. They've been fine, Lol.

Weedsnseeds1 Wed 17-Jun-20 06:42:13

Itsahardknocklife I would assume it's an underprocessing or underdosing of an ingredient ( emulsifying salts for example) issue, so a theoretical risk, rather than actually identifying botulinum toxin in a product, or the recall would be a bit more high profile.

Toddlerteaplease Wed 17-Jun-20 06:44:50

My colleague introduced me to primula on the Branston pickle mini cheddars. OMG! Divine!

ItsAHardKn0ckLife1 Wed 17-Jun-20 06:49:07

@Weedsnseeds1 yes, it did state it was a precautionary measure.

@Rubyupbeat I’ve heard lots of people mention this as a treat for dogs, good tip for any future pups I might bring home!

I'm going to b and m today to get hula hoops and primula.

Fatted Wed 17-Jun-20 07:20:05

I thought you were going to tell us it. I is not really made of cheese. That would not shock me.

Oh well, if it's got botulism in it, it's a nice cheapo home made Botix for everyone now the salons are all closed.

ItsAHardKn0ckLife1 Wed 17-Jun-20 07:28:59

@nancybotwinbloom I’ll be right behind you, in a none stalkerish way.

@Fatted wouldn’t shock me either grin little tubes of plasticky goodness. ‘tis tasty though.
