I noticed that all the raw meat I am buying from M&S has 'Do not reheat' on the packages.
So in other words I cannot for example, according to them, make a bolognese sauce from raw meat ingredients bought at M&S and then refrigerate or freeze it to reheat later!!
Nor can I make a casserole from beef chunks and reheat the leftovers next day etc etc I contacted M&S via their Facebook to ask them why it says 'do not reheat' and got a reply that makes no sense. Any food techy people here who might have any sensible reason to explain why M&S raw meat is different from raw meat bought everywhere else so that it needs this warning on it?
They’re using the same labelling as they do on pre-made food, as they can’t be bothered to issue (or pay for) new labelling. I raised this back when my neice worked for them and she was told emphatically that it was to encourage people to buy more.
Food technologist here. No reason at all not to.reheat after cooking ( as long g as you cooked it properly and refrigerated or frozen). Are you sure it doesn't say re-freeze rather than re-heat, as that would make sense for previously frozen raw meat? Even if previously frozen, still fine to cook and re-heat though.
