Expired frozen beef distributors in hot water

Following viral reports regarding the sale of expired frozen beef from Australia, the Brunei Darussalam Food Authority (BDFA) took action against the involved distributors by ordering the withdrawal of the affected frozen meat from the market.

The BDFA has issued a public reminder, especially to distributors and sellers, that the expiration date for food items such as frozen meat should not exceed 18 to 24 months from the slaughter date.

“The public must inform the BDFA about frozen meat with scratched or torn production dates, or still being sold beyond the expiry date,” said the BDFA in a statement.
