Blog: Soggy flannels

Catherine Sleep | 12 October 2004

The Food Commission has issued a new press release with ‘ten top tips’ for healthy eating. The principle is good: it encourages parents to analyse on-pack nutritional info and make sure that products they buy really are as healthy as they would have you think.

But I wonder if the Food Commission isn’t sailing a little close to the wind when it describes Bernard Matthews Ham Sandwich Slices as “as soggy as a wet flannel”. Isn’t this libellous? I wonder whether Bernard Matthews will respond? Perhaps they’ll do so by upping the meat content and lowering the water content… And isn’t it amazing that Bernard Matthews doesn’t have a website? Or rather, it does, but it only has a front page and a promise that there will be more to see soon. They’re privately held and can do as they please, but all the same, I’d have expected the UK’s largest turkey processor to have established an Internet presence by now.
