Muscle Food recalls meat products after FSA supplier inspection

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) and Food Standards Scotland (FSS) have just published details of a recall of meat products by Muscle Food.

The decision to recall was taken by Muscle Food, following an unannounced inspection by the FSA of their supplier, DB Foods. We had concerns about procedures at DB Foods for use-by dates on some products that were not compliant with legal requirements.

Muscle Food supplies meat products via its website directly to the public and the business is contacting all of its affected customers to make them aware of the recall.

People who have bought these products are advised not to eat them. Muscle Food will arrange a courier to pick the products up, and provide a full refund for the items.

There is no indication that people have become ill from eating meat supplied by DB Foods. The FSA and FSS are continuing to investigate their procedures along with local authorities and further action will be taken if necessary.

The recall of the affected products is a proportionate response to the issues found. We have no evidence of wider problems across DB Foods sites and no further action that would affect the business has been necessary. Distribution from their sites is continuing and is being overseen by FSA staff.

The FSA and FSS have already announced a review of cutting plants and cold stores following separate investigations into the meat sector. Further details of the review will be published later this month and the results will be fully available to the public.
