food alert for action
Consumers should be aware that an unregistered and unapproved Food Business Operator (FBO), Zak Ices, Belle Vue Street, Batley, West Yorkshire, WF17 7DD has been producing ice cream using an approval code of UK KM058 EEC which previously belonged to a another company and was withdrawn in 2007.

The FBO is also producing Ice cream in the name of ‘Lucky Gold Leaf’, using the same approval code of UK KM058 EEC. Whilst we have had sight of an old distribution list of ice cream supplied by Zak Ices (or Lucky Gold Leaf), investigations by Kirklees Council have confirmed that some of these businesses have recently been supplied ice cream by the FBO.

The products identified so far are listed as below, but other flavours could be available.

Action Taken

Kirklees Council have contacted the businesses located in Kirklees and removed the products where found. 

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If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product).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 FSA 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.
