Safe to eat?

I've googled it but its mostly people saying how gross they are, so really not helpful!!!

I had 2 for tea, so this is a case of shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted but I just wanted to ask the question!!!

What's in them?

they are pork mainly and so long as they are cooked properly are fine.
I love them!!

they are fine. I used to like them before I went vegetarian. Have one for me OP...

They're seriously revolting but essentially only various bits of pork so I'm guessing they're fine.

They're seriously delicious. Giant meatballs in gravy. Yum yum.

<wails on realising they're not available in this country>

Yummy one of my guilty pleasures. I had them for my tea last night with DH looking over in disgust. Didn't even cross my mind they wouldn't be safe.

No different to sausages, so fine I would think.

Yum, by the way. I want some now!

I had them on Sunday. Absolutely gorgeous, I loves them!

Proper faggots have liver and other offal in them which you shouldn't eat due to the Vit A, but I'm guessing if its not listed on the ingredients then it should be ok.

Just checked and they do contain liver (15%). But as you've eaten them you can't really do anything about it! I'm sure it's fine but don't make a habit of eating them regularly. Her is a link to the list of ingredients Mr Brains Faggots

Thanks milky I spoke to my midwife last night and she said it shouldn't be a problem because its low content but to avoid them in the future!!!

They were yummy though, with chips and peas!!!
