Britain’s biggest chicken supplier has been accused of tampering with food safety records, mislabelling produce and using chickens that have been dropped on its factory floor.
The company has been lying to supermarkets about the freshness of its produce in an effort to cut costs, a investigation by the Guardian revealed.
When it comes to food, we can’t afford to let companies cut corners to save costs. It’s time to hit 2SFG where it hurts -- by getting supermarkets to drop them as a supplier.
M&S, Aldi and Lidl have already flown the coop and suspended all business with 2SFG. Let’s make Tesco and Sainsbury’s to do the same.
Tesco and Sainsbury’s: suspend all business with 2SFG!
Last week’s investigation by the Guardian and ITV News revealed undercover footage of workers altering the slaughter date of poultry at a 2SFG plant, with workers confirming they’d been asked to switch labels before.
Experts said changing “kill dates” could artificially stretch the commercial life of meat products -- but it’s illegal to place incorrect use-by dates on food.
Labour's Paul Flynn, from the Commons environment, food and rural affairs select committee, said the allegations could damage the UK’s ability to market foods after leaving the EU,
“The foundations of trust in the quality of British food will be shaken by the [this] evidence. The reputational damage [to British food] could profoundly undermine our ability to market foods to new customers in the tumultuous Brexit future."
