Farmfoods withdraws a number of own brand pre-packed cooked meats
Withdrawn from sale
Farmfoods has withdrawn a number of own brand pre-packed cooked meats due to the durability indication being described as ‘best before’ rather than ‘use by’.

- Farmfoods Cooked Ham, 200g
- Farmfoods Honey Roast Ham, 300g
- Farmfoods Lean Ham, 300g
- Farmfoods Lean Breaded Ham, 300g
- Farmfoods Pork Luncheon Meat, 250g

Action taken by the company
Farmfoods has undertaken a withdrawal of these products from all of its stores. Point-of-Sale notices are being displayed in stores advising consumers of the need to consume the product by the date on the packaging and within two days of opening.
No other Farmfoods products are known to be affected
