Iceland is recalling packs of Crispy Chicken Dippers as some may contain pieces of hard plastic that could be dangerous.

The Food Standards Agency, which issues Product Withdrawal Information Notices and Product Recall Information Notices, says possible contamination may make the food unsafe to eat.

No other of Iceland’s products are known to be affected.

The recall refers to pack of 60 with a ‘best before’ date code prior to 09 January 2021.

Point of sale notices will be displayed in all stores stocking the affected packs to explain to customers why the product is being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought any.

The FSA said: “If you have bought any of the above product do not eat it.

“Instead, return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.”
