Greggs is recalling its frozen two-pack steak bakes, which are sold in Iceland stores, because they may contain small pieces of plastic.
The presence of plastic in the affected products, which have the best before dates of 20, 22 and 23 December, make them unsafe to eat, said the Food Standards Agency.
They are part of a range of Greggs-branded frozen products that are available only through Iceland stores. The recall does not affect any other products or date codes.
“We take all issues regarding food safety very seriously. As a precaution, we are recalling some of our two-pack Frozen Steak Bakes, exclusively sold in Iceland stores, due to the possibility there may be some small pieces of plastic in them,” said a spokesperson for Greggs, who added that the company is conducting a thorough investigation.
“This does not affect any of our freshly baked savoury products sold in our Greggs shops or other Greggs products sold at Iceland. Any customers who have purchased this product with these best before dates, are asked not to use them and return them to an Iceland store for a full refund.”
Point of sale notices will be displayed in all Iceland stores that are selling the product.
