Star Foods "Blows" It, Issues Recall Notice

The UK Food Standards Agency is alerting consumers to a recall initiated by Star Foods Inc. due to date labeling and vacuum packaging issues. The company has recalled all sizes and date codes of the following products:

  • Star Foods Peppered Mackerel
  • Star Foods Smoked Mackerel
  • Star Foods Sliced Chicken Roll
  • Star Foods Sliced Chicken Breast
  • Star Foods Sliced Spiced Chicken
Several of the recalled items were labeled with incorrectly extended use-by dates. The peppered and smoked mackerel products were not vacuum packaged correctly, and some of the packages have blown. Blowing of a normally vacuum-packaged product is a symptom of possible microbial growth in the package.

The recalled items were distributed only in the southeast region of the UK. Star Foods has requested that its customers return these products to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers may contact Harry by telephone at 07958 194963 to obtain any additional information they may require.
