Waitrose need to reach a conclusion – and quickly now. They are offering for sale game meat with a misleading health warning – in my opinion.
They have had my communication for two weeks and I know that I wasn’t the first to get in touch with them. Their health warning is wrong, and errs on the side of false reassurance rather than false alarm so the onus is on them to fix it quickly.
This lunch time you will get the answer to this question – so have a think about it – how many emails does Natural England have in its system which mention Mark Avery?
