Birmingham Halal Abattoir (UK 4496) is recalling sheep and lamb meat and pet food products because they may contain meat which is unfit for human and pet consumption. Meat and pet food from four product lines which should have been removed from production have been packaged with meat and pet food which passed inspection. As it is not possible to identify which batches contained the unfit product, Birmingham Halal Abattoir has taken the precautionary step of recalling all batches of the products listed below as it might contain meat that is unsafe.

Action taken by the company
Birmingham Halal Abattoir is recalling the above products. Point of sale notices will be displayed at all points these products were put on sale. These notices explain to customers why the products are being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought these products.

Our advice to consumers
If you have bought any of the above products do not eat them or feed them to your pet. Instead, return them to the store from where they were bought for a full refund.

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If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be ‘withdrawn’ (taken off the shelves) or ‘recalled’ (when customers are asked to return the product).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