Dye scare food supplied to schools and hospitals

Two leading catering companies admitted supplying foods listed in the cancer dye alert to schools and hospitals.
Food giants 3663 and Brakes, which also hold major contracts with pubs and restaurants, said they had ordered a recall of all potentially-contaminated items as soon as they were contacted about the problem.

The alert, which has prompted the biggest food recall in British retail history, was sparked when it was discovered a consignment of Crosse and Blackwell Worcester Sauce, made by Premier Foods, contained chilli powder contaminated with the banned Sudan 1 dye.
