Pork found in halal chicken burgers distributed by Birmingham firm

Pork has been discovered in Halal chicken burgers which were distributed by a Birmingham food company.

Birmingham City Council’s environmental health team discovered the Humza brand burgers, sold in packs of 20, contained pork protein after the officers were checking for horsemeat.

The affected burgers, which have a best before date of May 10, 2013, are distributed by Roshan Food. Anyone who has the product, one of 170 samples to be tested in the city, is asked to return it to where they bought it from.

A council spokesman said: “The city council would like to stress that at this stage, there is no evidence to suggest that Roshan Foods has caused this deliberately.
