    So what was going on here then?

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-42826242

    I have my suspicions but just wondered if anyone has heard what the problem actually was?

    No doubt it will come out in the end.....
    Bit surprising to see such a diverse range of food outlets all using a common supplier..
    Blows a hole in the “come to us for a superior dining experience” advertising.
    I suppose it’s not what you have, but what you do with it.
    A phrase that probably sums the whole thing up!

    Hmmm
    What has struck me, usually the reason is pretty upfront ...company "X" have broken rule "Y" therefore FSA have taken "Z" action.
    This time everything is being kept very quiet.
    I find it amazing that the press have failed to find some disgruntled individual that knows the ins and outs.
    Could it be that the FSA are not going to come out of this as a shining star?
    Probably pays to be wary of speculating to much in public......after all, guilty until proven etc

    Exactly why I didn't repeat what I heard as I'm not in a position to provide any proof, if I can find a third party link to the same information I'll post it but until then it's only hearsay. It is very strange that none of the papers have crossed somebodies hand with thirty pieces of silver yet they are very good at that. If I were paranoid I'd wonder about a "D notice" oh I see they are a DMSA notice now.

    It's a good while since the tabloids had so many column inches with no facts.
