product recall
Asda is recalling its Deli Pork And Egg Slices from customers, because a labelling error has resulted the products being labelled with a 'use by' date of 17 August 2013 rather than 17 April 2013. Eating a product past the intended 'use by' date could pose a risk to health. The Agency has issued a Product Recall Information Notice.

Asda has withdrawn the above product from sale. The company has also placed consumer notices in their stores, telling customers about the recall.

If you have bought the above product, please do eat it, but return to your nearest store for a full refund. You can also contact Asda Customer Relations on 0800 952 0101.

About product recalls and withdrawals

If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). The Food Standards Agency issues Product Withdrawal Information Notices and Product Recall Information Notices to let consumers and local authorities know about problems associated with food. In some cases, a 'Food Alert for Action' is issued. This provides local authorities with details of specific action to be taken on behalf of consumers.

You can get FSA alerts about product recalls and withdrawals either by email or SMS text. Visit the 'Email updates' link at the bottom of this page to find out how.
