Iceland Recalls Turkey Dinosaurs As They 'May Contain Metal Pieces'

Iceland Recalls Turkey Dinosaurs As They 'May Contain Metal Pieces'

The health food revolution is in full swing, but most 90s kids will still feel a sense of nostalgia over the simple diet of potato smilies and Turkey Dinosaurs.

And while the latter is still sold in supermarkets across the UK, Iceland was recently forced to recall a batch of the Jurassic-shaped nuggets due to potential risk of metal contaminants.

The Mirror reports that shoppers are being warned not to eat the Bernard Matthews products following a recall from manufacturers, warning that they 'may contain small pieces of metal'.

If you find your freezer contains one of the 450g bags with a best before date of either 16 or 30 November 2020 - coded either L19QGG3, L19QGG4, L19QHG3 or L19QHG4 - then you can take your product to the shop for a full refund.

A notice from the Food Standards Agency (FSA) says: "Bernard Matthews is recalling 9 Turkey Dinosaurs because they may contain small pieces of metal. The presence of metal makes this product unsafe to eat.

"If you have bought the above product, do not eat it. Instead, return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund."

Earlier this year, the supermarket's packs of 60 Crispy Chicken Dippers were recalled over fears they may have contained small pieces of plastic.

Similarly, the FSA posted a notice, warning customers that the product may be 'unsafe to eat', while Iceland urged customers to return the product for a full refund.

The products were pulled from the shelves and the website due to the potential risk of hard pieces of plastic in the chicken dippers.

These are just a couple of examples of increasing numbers of food recalls in recent years, as manufacturers ramp up food safety due to the risk of contaminants, allergens and pathogens making their way into the food supply chain.

Speaking about the matter, the FSA writes on its website: "If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product).

"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."
