MDA Foods products recalled over repackaging concerns
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has issued a recall of MDA Foods Ltd’s frozen fish and chicken.
Consumers have been warned by the Agency not to consume a number of products that have been repackaged in unapproved premises, raising concerns over safety.
“These products are also the subject of a number of labelling and traceability contraventions,” said the FSA.
“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 They are not compliant with food law requirements and should be withdrawn from the market and recalled from consumers.”
According to the FSA, it has not been possible to obtain the full distribution details or product traceability record for these products. This is despite investigations by the enforcement authorities.
All date and batch codes of products from animal origins and supplied by MDA are affected by this alert.
Some of the products known to be affected are:
• 4 Cod Fillets wrapped in crunchy golden breadcrumbs, 480g
• Lytham Fish Co Basa Fillets, 800g
• Lytham Fish Co 100% White Fish Fillet Burgers, 4 pack, 460g
• Tasty Chicken Co Chicken Fillets in Tomato and Herb Marinade 400g
• Alaskan Pollock Fillets, wrapped in crunchy golden breadcrumbs, 500g

• 3 Chicken and Spinach Escalopes
• Breaded Hake Goujons, 500g
• Cod Bites, 500g
• Cod Fillets 500g
• Panga White Fish Fillets, 1kg
The FSA has advised customers that have bought any of the above products not to consume them.
Meat Trades Journal was informed that nobody from MDA was available for comment at this time.
