BEWARE: 11 frozen fish, chicken products you shouldnt eat

LONDON Jan 14: A food watchdog has issued a safety warning over a range of frozen fish and chicken products.
 
They have been repackaged in "unapproved premises" and are potentially unsafe, Food Standards Scotland (FSS) said.
 
The products may also have best before or use by dates that have been extended beyond those set by the manufacturers.
 
The products affected have been supplied by MDA Products.
 
Anyone who has bought the affected products is being warned not to eat them.
 
They were on sale in Fultons Foods and Jack Fultons, Factory Foods and Home Bargains who are recalling products and displaying notices in stores, FSS said.
 
A Food Alert For Action (Fafa) has been sent to environmental service departments in all local authorities to ensure the products are removed from sale.
 
An FSS spokeswoman said: "FSS has today issued a Fafa to heads of environmental health services at Scottish local authorities regarding a number of food products, mainly frozen fish and chicken, which have been repackaged in unapproved premises and are therefore potentially unsafe, by MDA Products Ltd. 
 
"These products are also the subject of a number of labelling and traceability contraventions. 
 
"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"They are not compliant with food law requirements and should be withdrawn from the market and recalled from consumers."
