Asda issues urgent recall of popular dinner item deemed unsafe to eat'




Asda has issued an urgent for a popular dinner item which it deems as "unsafe to eat".

An alert was made regarding Asda's Succulent Cooked and Peeled King Prawns after a labelling error showed an incorrect use-by date.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) echoed the call, saying that Asda is pulling the product from shelves as it could threaten consumers' health.

The FSA further explained: "Asda is recalling Asda Succulent Cooked and Peeled King Prawns because of a labelling error which shows an incorrect use-by date, making them unsafe to eat.

"Point of sale notices will be displayed in all retail stores that are selling this product. These notices explain to customers why the products are being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the product."

The recall statement from the supermarket chain explained that the correct use-by date is April 21, not December.

It is therefore unsafe for customers to consume the prawns beyond April 21.

Anyone who has purchased the affected batches of the product is asked not to consume the prawns but to return them to the store for a full refund.

Asda reassured customers that no receipt is needed to receive a full refund on the product, and has apologised for any inconvenience caused.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) will withdraw or recall food products that have problems, meaning they should not be sold.

A statement read: "The FSA issues Product Withdrawal Information Notices and Product Recall Information Notices to let consumers and local authorities know about problems associated with food. In some cases, a 'Food Alert for Action' is issued. This provides local authorities with details of specific action to be taken on behalf of consumers."
