Following the Eat & Go., Ltd. Food Alert for Action (FAFA) issued on 13 December 2016, Food Standards Scotland has today (26 May 2017) issued a FAFA confirming that Fife Council has lifted the Remedial Action Notice (RAN) which was placed on the company, restricting the shelf life of a number of pre-packed products.
Eat & Go Co. Ltd., Unit 1 Midfield Road, Mitchelston Industrial Estate, Kirkcaldy, Fife, KY1 3NL undertook a voluntary product recall on 10 December 2016 following inspection by the local authority, where it was discovered that the shelf life for a number of products was being extended.
A RAN was served on the company to restrict the shelf life of the products. This FAFA was in response to products distributed and remaining in the marketplace with an un-validated shelf life of up to eight days.
