A food recall has been issued for products Biltong Beef Snacks sold in From Our Farm stores. A packaging defect seems to be the cause of the problem.

The company has said that the packaging fault could lead to the presence of mould.

Anyone who has bought the affected packs is being urged not to eat them.

This could cause a health risk for anyone who bought the affected packs.

The warning has only been issued on the products sold by From Our Farm and it does not affect other Biltong Beef Snack sold in other stores.

The Food Standards Agency warning reads: “From Our Farm is recalling multiple flavours of Biltong Beef Snack because of the possible presence of mould.

“The possible presence of mould makes the products unsafe to eat.

“From Our Farm is recalling the above products.

“If you have bought any of the above products do not eat them. Instead, return them to the store from where they were bought for a full refund.”

The products being recalled are:

The Food Standards Agency explains that food recalls are issued when a product could pose a potential health or safety risk.

They should immediately be returned to stores for a full refund and don’t be consumed.

Other supermarkets recently recalling products have been Morrisons or Asda.

Morrisons asked customers a few days ago not to eat six sponge cakes due to allergy fears.

The product contained milk which was not mentioned on the label.

The supermarket also recalled its Nutella Ferrero B-ready chocolates because the allergens on the packaging were not written in English.

Asda warned customers with an intolerance to milk not to eat its Extra Special Frozen Vegan Mushroom and Leek Pie because it contains the undeclared ingredient.
