Item 17: Unclassifed or miscellaneous frozen poultry products

Except fat, broth or soups with some exceptions, these are generally products which cannot - with any confidence - be placed in the categories above. If a product is labelled "turkey", "duck" or "geese", then it is likely to be only that product and should be placed under the appropriate categories; whereas a product labelled "chicken" – particularly one which has been chopped, diced or formed, can only safely be said to be a species of chicken and might be prepared from broiler chicken and/or mature chicken. If there is any uncertainty as to whether a product labelled "chicken" may contain mature chicken (stewing hen/fowl) then it should be reported under the "Unclassified" category and not in the cateories above.
