Bake-a-Paste Ltd. manufactures the Maysum brand of halal frozen foods.
In 2003, Britain's Directors of Trading Standards found that the Maysum brand of frozen samosas and spring rolls was contaminated with the illegal dye, Sudan I. Sudan I is not a permitted colour under the Colours in Food Regulations 1995. It is considered to be a genotoxic carcinogen and its presence, at any level, is not permitted in foodstuffs for any purpose.
The problem was quickly rectified.   Added on March 15, 2008
