Do you have these in your freezer?


The Food Safety Authority of Ireland have issued urgent alerts about Big Al’s chicken products.

The alert was issued after it was discovered that some ingredients in Big Al’s chicken goujons, chicken chunks and chicken dippers were undeclared on the labels.

This could mean the products are unsafe for consumption by people with certain allergies.

Mustard was not declared on the labels of a variety of batches of Big Al’s chicken chunks and chicken dippers.

Milk and mustard were omitted from the ingredients list on labels of the 400g packs of chicken goujons with the price €3.95 marked on the box with a best before date of the end of December 2018.

Big Al’s chicken chunks 277g with the price €3.95 marked on the product with best before dates of the end of November 2018, end of January 2019 and end of February 2019 all contain mustard which isn’t listed on the label.

The same product with no price marked on the box with the best before date of January 2019 also contains undeclared mustard.

Big Al’s chicken dippers 387g with a best before date of end of October 2018 also contain mustard that was not listed on the label.

The FSAI has warned people with allergies or intolerances to milk and mustard to be wary of consuming these products.

They said: “This may make the implicated batches unsafe for consumers who are allergic to or intolerant of mustard or its constituents.”
