Iceland is recalling packs of crispy chicken dippers over concerns that the packs may contain pieces of hard plastic.

The Food Standards Agency has said the pieces of plastic mean the product is not safe to eat.

Iceland will display point of sale notices in all stores that sell the dippers explaining to customers that they should not eat the product and advising them to return the dippers to their nearest store to receive a full refund.

The issue affects the 60 pack bags of crispy chicken dippers, with all best before dates.

The dippers, which sell for £3 a bag and are a bestseller online, are currently listed as unavailable on the Iceland webite. 

They are described as being a chopped and form chicken breast fillet in a crispy batter coating and pre-fried.

The Food Standards Agency said the dippers “may contain pieces of hard plastic which makes the product unsafe to eat.”

It is advising all customers who have bought the dippers to return it to the store it was purchased to receive a full refund.

No other Iceland products are known to be affected by the problem.

The last few months have seen several food recalls prompted by serious concerns.

It was revealed this month that five people died after contracting listeria , believed to be linked to pre-packed chicken sandwiches. It is thought they had all eaten chicken sandwiches provided by the Good Food Chain, which used meat from North Country Cooked Meats. Both firms have now ceased production.

Also this month, Cadbury recalled batches of its Cadbury Caramel Cheesecake and Cadbury Dairy Milk Cheesecake puddings over fears they could contain Listeria .

In May, Costa Coffee recalled its chicken and bacon pasta salad over concerns it could cause allergic reactions. It contained fish, milk and mustard which were not listed on the label.
