What's wrong with my query?

I've attached a large query. For some reason though it seems to fail importing with this error:
#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'Swiss Roll 300g','2.45'),('Bakery','05/28/2013 13:53:56','Staffords Apple Tart 6' at line 1

I've removed that line and the error continues onto the next line. I can't understand why this is so as the inputs before it don't get flagged as a problem.

It is a large query and Im running it in through phpmyadmin SQL tab. If I reduce down the rows it works fine (tested it at around 300) however, why this error is appearing I do not know.

Thanks in advance.

I'm not a mySQL expert, but it sounds like the number of records you are inserting have exceeded the max query size and therefore mySQL my be truncating your query which would give an error.

The limit of your statement is established by the max_allowed_packet parameter. Try adjusting it and re-run your query. For example you can increase it to 32M like this:

mysqld --max_allowed_packet=32M

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/packet-too-large.html

or you can break your query into multiple ones as suggested above
