Butlins, Yates and the Slug & Lettuce are among the big names that have been pulled into the meat hygiene crisis.


The crisis, which started with Wetherspoons withdrawing Russell Hume meat from its outlets during its popular steak night, has now escalated with concerns the public wasn’t alerted until 12 days after the Food Standards Agency discovered problems.

Watch dogs also ordered schools, care homes and restaurants to stop serving the supplier’s meat as the crisis continues to grow.

Butlins and Haven holiday camps, quickly withdrew the meat. Bourne Leisure, owner of Butlins and Haven holiday camps has said it is using another supplier.

The Food Standards Agency has urged restaurants and other customers with unused Russell Hume meat to dispose of it immediately.
