FSS issues withdrawal advisory on HS Glasgow Foods’ products

FBR Staff Writer Published 15 November 2016

Scottish food watchdog Food Standards Scotland (FSS) has issued a withdrawal advisory to local authorities to ensure a ban on products made by HS Glasgow Foods.

FSS said that HS Glasgow Foods located in Glasgow was operating without approval from local authority. It has been alleged to have produced chicken pakora, pakora sauce and vegetable pakora without the necessary permission.

There could have been other products as well produced by the food business operator as per the FSS.

The watchdog said that the company’s customers are likely to be chip shops and takeaways across the central belt of the country including Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Renfrewshire, Lothians and Edinburgh.

FSS said that it has obtained evidence despite having denied the supply of HS Glasgow Foods' products.

It has said that the type of food products made by the company needed to be produced in establishments that were approved by regulators.

As they were not produced in approved establishments, the FSS said that they are considered to be unsafe for consumption.

FSS revealed that it could not contact or gain access to the premises in question to get the complete details of distribution nor could it get any traceability records for the HS Glasgow Foods’ products.

The food watchdog has appealed to local authorities to ensure that the product withdrawal is effective and also that they are not placed on the market.

Last week, FSS issued a revised Food Alert For Action to local authorities to continue withdrawal of Errington Cheese products from the market on E. coli contamination grounds.
