Belbin's Grocery issues recall on meals made in-store

After more than 70 years in business, a downtown St. John's grocery store is issuing its first recall.

Belbin's Grocery issued a statement Thursday afternoon saying all store-made meals prepared between April 15 and April 21 should either be disposed of or returned to Belbin's for store credit.

These include sandwiches, salads, baked goods, fruit, vegetable and cheese trays.

According to owner Robert Belbin, the discovery was made when certain foods were sent to catering events early last week.

"Clients that were affected were contacted and the situation has been resolved. The recall notice issued today is an extra precautionary measure," he wrote.

"Belbin's has been in the food industry since 1943 and this is our first recall of any of our store-made products. Customers can be assured that food safety has and always will be our top priority."
