Recall for Young's Seafood after plastic found in fish cakes

By Grimsby Telegraph | Posted: 16 Feb 2018

SEAFOOD giant Young’s has recalled a batch of Grimsby-manufactured fish cakes after they were found to contain small pieces of hard plastic and potentially metal.

It is understood to have come from a damaged forming plate, part of the rapid production process at the town factory, and has been replaced following the incident. 

The affected range is the The Chip Shop six-pack, known to have been supplied into Farmfoods and Heron.

Bosses have narrowed it down to four production codes, with no other products affected, and have described the move as a “precaution”. 

A spokesperson said: “We apologise to retailers and our customers for any inconvenience caused by this voluntary recall. The safety and quality of our products is highly important to us and we take all issues regarding the production of our food extremely seriously.”

The costly step will no doubt have prompted an internal investigation to identify exactly what led to the contamination. 

Production codes of the potentially affected fish cakes are: AAL 7209K, AAL 7209L, AAK 7222J & AAL 7222K, and it is found with the best before date on the side of the back.

For details of how to return the product for a full refund, consumers are urged to call the Young’s Seafood care line on: 0800 496 8647 or email
