Iceland Recalls Crispy Chicken Dippers As They 'May Contain Pieces Of Plastic'

Iceland is recalling its 60 Crispy Chicken Dippers as some packs 'may contain pieces of hard plastic'.

According to the Food Standards Agency, the presence of plastic 'makes this product unsafe to eat'.

Earlier this month two varieties of Cadbury puddings were recalled over fears that they may contain a harmful strain of bacteria.

If you've bought either Cadbury Caramel Cheesecake or Cadbury Dairy Milk Cheesecake puddings, made by Müller, then the company advises you not to eat them, but to send them back, as they may be contaminated with listeria. No other products are affected.

The items recalled have the expiry dates: 5 June 2019, 6 June 2019 and 11 June 2019, according to the Food Standards Agency.

The products were pulled from supermarket shelves due to 'the possible presence of Listeria monocytogenes', a bacteria which can cause listeriosis.

Symptoms usually start off similar to flu, with a high-temperature, aching muscles, sickness and diarrhoea. In around 20 per cent of cases the condition can be fatal, particularly if it affects elderly people. It can also be especially harmful to pregnant women and their unborn babies.

In a statement to the Mirror, Müller said: "As a precautionary measure a decision has been taken to recall some batches of Cadbury Caramel Cheesecake and Cadbury Dairy Milk Cheesecake deserts (2x85g), due to the possible presence of Listeria in the product.

"Müller produces these products under license from Cadbury and has stressed that this does not impact any other products it produces for Cadbury; or Cadbury Cheesecake variants in the UK or other markets.
