Healthy eating firm recalls more than SIXTY meat products following unannounced inspection by industry watchdog
An online food retailer has recalled more than 60 different products following an unannounced inspection by the industry watchdog.
Muscle Food, based in Nottingham, is urging customers not to eat a range of meat products including beef burgers, steaks, pork and venison.
It comes after a Food Standards Agency (FSA) inspection into its supplier and sister company, DB Foods, found use-by dates on some products fell short of legal requirements.

The labels indicated ‘use-by’ dates that exceeded the 10 days permitted by the FSA.
Muscle Food sells high-protein food online, including lean meat and vegan substitutes, directly to customers through its website.
It also supplies pizzas to Sainsbury’s although these are not affected by the recall.
The affected products were sold between January 25 and February 3 2018.
Customers who have bought the affected products are advised not to eat them although an FSA notice said there is no indication that anyone has fallen ill.
The notice also said that so far there isn’t any wider issues with other DB Foods sites and that they are still continuing to distribute food under the eye of FSA staff.

Muscle Food has already contacted all customers who have bought product from the affected batches and will arrange a courier to pick the products up, and provide a full refund for the items.
In a statement Muscle Food said: ‘This is a voluntary precautionary recall for a small selection of products from DB Foods, delivered to a small selection of customers between the 25th of January and 3rd of February due to concerns on supplier applied use by dates.
‘Muscle Food never sacrifices our incredibly high quality standards for our customers, and the majority of our suppliers are BRC AA accredited; the highest industry standard that can be achieved.’
A statement from DB Food said: ‘DB Foods has an excellent record in safety and takes pride in the quality of its products. We will continually work to ensure that this quality is not compromised.’
