On Saturday 31 January approximately 1,000 individuals, who are signed up for text message notifications from the Food Standards Agency, received excessive alerts of the same message during a two-hour period.
GovDelivery apologises for the incident and the impact on those subscribed to receive information about Food and Allergy Alerts from the Food Standards Agency (FSA).
The Food Standards Agency is dedicated to communicating information about Food and Allergy alerts to consumers as quickly as possible. This text message service is one of the ways the FSA does this. We have successfully identified and resolved this issue and urge subscribers to stay signed up to receiving Food and Allergy alerts.
