Recall of Ryan Foods ready-to-eat products

A number of Ryan Foods ready-to-eat products have been produced in unapproved premises under unsatisfactory hygiene conditions and distributed in the Glasgow area. Glasgow City Council has recalled the products, but it is not possible to recall them all. If you have bought any of the affected products, do not eat them. The Agency has issued a Food Alert for Action.

Product details

All packs of the following products are recalled:

  • Aysha’s Bite Size Chicken Pakora
  • Aysha’s 5 Bite Size Chicken Samosas
  • Aysha’s 5 Bite Size Vegetable Samosas
  • Aysha's Chicken Tikka
  • Ryan’s Chinese Lemon Chicken
  • Rico’s Pizzas – all varieties

Glasgow City Council has started a recall of the products within its area, and continues to monitor the ongoing operation. Distribution is believed to be restricted to the Glasgow area, but it has not been possible to obtain full distribution details or product traceability records.

If you have bought any of the above products, do not eat them.

Actions to be taken by local authorities

These products do not comply with food hygiene regulations. If any of these products are found during routine inspections, enforcement officers should ensure they are withdrawn from sale and destroyed.

If a local authority finds significant quantities of any of the products, please let the Agency know immediately and provide details of the consignment. More information about the actions to be taken by local authorities can be found in the Food Alert for Action at the link below.

About product withdrawals and recalls

If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). The Food Standards Agency issues Product Withdrawal Information Notices and Product Recall Information Notices to let consumers and local authorities know about problems associated with food. In some cases, a ‘Food Alert for Action’ is issued. This provides local authorities with details of specific action to be taken on behalf of consumers.

You can get FSA alerts about product recall and withdrawals either by email or SMS text. Visit the Get Alerts page at the link towards the bottom of this page to find out how.
