FSA Issues Warning for Unsafe Meat Supplied by Block and Cleaver in Swanley

Warning Issued for ‘Unsafe’ Meat Supplied by Block and Cleaver in Swanley

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has issued a warning for meat supplied by Block and Cleaver in Swanley, a butcher based in Kent. According to public health officials, the meat is deemed “unsafe” and has been ordered to be removed from the market.

The FSA has raised concerns about beef, pork, and chicken products supplied by Block and Cleaver to various businesses in London and the south-east. These products have been found to not meet the necessary food safety and hygiene standards. The agency has also stated that the meat may have incorrect use-by dates, traceability breaches, and may not have been prepared following proper food safety processes.

As a result, the FSA has alerted Environmental Health and Trading Standards to take action and remove the affected meat and meat products from distribution. The agency has also advised food businesses such as restaurants, cafes, and hotels to withdraw any products supplied by Block and Cleaver from sale immediately. These products should be disposed of safely to avoid any potential health risks.

The FSA has also urged food businesses who have sold meat or meat products directly to consumers to undertake product recalls and inform their local authority, who will in turn notify the FSA. The impacted items include beef and beef products with use-by dates up to and including June 21, 2024, and pork and chicken, and meat products with use-by dates up to and including June 22, 2024.

Block and Cleaver has been contacted for comment, but has yet to issue a statement. The FSA has advised consumers to refrain from consuming any meat or meat products supplied by the butcher until further notice. The agency will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as necessary to ensure the safety of the public.
