It is suspected that 12 tonnes of turkey butterflies, processed by Severnside Provisions Ltd at premises in Newport, South Wales were supplied to independent butchers and catering outlets throughout South and Mid Wales, South West and south-central England.
Eight tonnes have so far been retained and prevented from entering the food chain after action by Newport City Council.
There is no evidence at present of any specific risk to public health from consuming this product. However, it is illegal to supply meat from unapproved premises.
Customers have been advised not to eat a batch of turkey butterflies that were produced in "unapproved premises", the food safety watchdog has warned.
