Food safety is a given, when a consumer purchases food they expect it to be safe and fit to eat. The responsibility for ensuring food is safe to eat rests with the farmer (sometimes called the primary producer), the manufacturer or processor (if the food is prepared in a factory), the distributor and wholesaler (the people responsible for transfering the food from the manufacturer to the shop or to the door in the case of direct sales or mail order), the retailer and the consumer themselves.

The Food Standards Agency reports that Shaws of Huddersfield has recalled their Shaws of Huddersfield 1889 Apricot and Ginger Chutney, because the product contains sulphur dioxide, which is not declared on the label.
