The manufacturer recalled the products after finding small pieces of hard plastic and potentially small pieces of metal in them.
The recall applied to 300g six-packs of Young’s frozen Chip Shop Fish Cakes. Affected packs had best-before-end dates of January and February 2019.
Packs of the affected fish cakes have been on sale at retailers Farmfoods and Heron Foods. Consumers were advised to look out for products with the batch codes: AAL 7209K, AAL 7209L, AAK 7222J and AAL 7222K.
Young’s said the contamination of the fish cakes had occurred during the manufacturing process.
A spokesman told FoodManufacture.co.uk: “We believe this was down to a damaged forming plate, which has been replaced following this incident.”
A statement from the Food Standards Agency advised consumers who had bought the products not to eat them and instead return them to the store where they were bought to receive a full refund.
Meanwhile, meat-free food manufacturer Quorn was forced to recall packs of its chilled Tikka Masala with Basmati Rice this week, due to potential contamination with pieces of rubber.
