Halal meat manufacturer Tahira Foods Limited is recalling a number of products because ‘poor temperature controls’ has made them unsafe to eat. The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has issued the warning alongside the nine affected products.

The FSA website explains that products are recalled if there is a problem with a food item which means it should not be sold. The FSA issues product withdrawal notices and product recall information to let consumers and local authorities know about problems associated with certain foods.

The Tahira website explains that their halal beef and lamb products come from animals which have been slaughtered by hand without stunning. Chicken products however use meat coming from birds which first go through a mildly electrified bain-marie before slaughtering but with an inspector on hand to ensure the bird is still alive. The slaughtering happens by machine.

The FSA advises if you have bought the affected products do not eat them. Instead, return them to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.
