Dear Students and Colleagues,

Contamination of Smoked Salmon by Listeria monocytogenes Incident

Referring to the recent food safety alert issued by the Centre of Food Safety (CFS) on the possible contamination of smoked salmon by Listeria monocytogenes, CEDARS has inquired all contract caterers shortly after the announcement by CFS and was given to understand that FOUR of our caterers listed below ordered the smoked salmon manufactured by the concerned supplier - Polyfood Food Service Co. Ltd. For the sake of customer safety, all four affected caterers have ceased selling the products containing smoked salmon immediately after the announcement of the CFS and all caterers, except Grove Café, have already switched to other suppliers for smoked salmon and resumed sale of the concerned products. Grove Café (Centennial Campus) will resume the sale of the affected products once they have selected the alternative supplier. CEDARS will keep the University community informed if there is further development on this incident.

- Pacific Coffee Company (Global Lounge Cafeteria)
- Starbucks Coffee (Main Library (Old Wing) Coffee Shop & Composite Building)
- Knockbox Coffee Company (HKJCBIR Cafeteria)
- Grove Café (Centennial Campus)

Please refer to the update from the CFS for details:
Announcement on March 29, 3015
