A number of meat and fish products are being recalled from sale across the UK, as they are “potentially unsafe”. The Food Standards Agency (FSA) and Food Standards Scotland (FSS) said the MDA Products Ltd items had been repackaged in unapproved premises. They also said they may have best before or use by dates that had been extended beyond those set by the manufacturers and should not be eaten. Home Bargains and Factory Foods are among the shops known to sell them. They have also been sold by Frozen Value Ltd, trading as Fultons Foods and Jack Fultons. The FSA and FSS said they had issued a Food Alert for Action (Fafa) to the heads of environmental health services at local authorities and directors of Trading Standards throughout the UK. The agencies said the products, mostly chicken and fish, were the subject of “a number of labelling and traceability contraventions”. People who have bought the products have been advised not to eat them. A statement added: “They may have best before or use by dates that have been extended beyond those set by the manufacturers and without authorisation. They are not compliant with food law requirements and should be withdrawn from the market and recalled from consumers.
