26.We note the commitments made to us. They are a matter of public record. We trust that they will be acted upon in the same good faith in which they were received. At the same time, all those involved in the food chain require confirmation that changes have been made and incidents such as these prevented. We recommend that the FSA provide us with a written assurance that each reform promised to us by the accreditation agencies, 2 Sisters Food Group and the FSA itself has been made, no later than six months from publication of this report. We further request an interim update no later than three months from publication of this report. Upon receipt of that update we will consider our future action, including whether to re-open this inquiry and take further evidence from those involved.
