This past week also saw Iceland recall packs of cooked chicken breast over fears some packs might contain uncooked product.
Iceland Ready Cooked Diced Chicken Breast has been pulled from store shelves because it may contain uncooked chicken. The possible presence of raw, uncooked chicken makes this product unsafe to eat.

Meanwhile, undeclared allergens sparked a recall of Lidl GB breaded kies last week.
Lidl GB is recalling Birchwood 2 Breaded Katsu Kiev because it may contain milk which is not mentioned on the label.
This is because the product has been mispacked with Garlic and Herb Chicken Kiev which contains milk. This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents.
