Iceland has recalled Jim Beam Bourbon Ribs frozen meals and warned customers not to eat them.

The product has been recalled over  fears that incorrect storage instructions on the packaging could lead to it being spoiled.

Iceland has asked customers to contact the Iceland Customer Care Line if they have bought Iceland Jim Beam Bourbon Ribs (450g) with a use by date of March 25, 2017 because incorrect storage instructions are mentioned on the product packaging which may cause the product to spoil.

If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be withdrawn (taken off the shelves) or recalled (when customers are asked to return the product), the Liverpool Echo reports.

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.

A spokesperson for Iceland told one customer on the firms Facebook page

“I can confirm that a small batch of the Jim Beam Ribs have recently been recalled, however, this is not due to a fault or risk with the products itself. The faulty batch was stamped as a chilled item as appose the the frozen product in which it is. As the incorrect storage instructions have been stamped on its packaging this could lead to it being spoiled if followed. I can assure you that there are no risks with the product, we just want to be sure that we are providing our customers with great quality products.”

If you have bought the above product, do not eat it.

Instead, call Iceland’s Customer Care Line on 01244 842842.
