Food recalls are put in place after the discovery of safety issues or product defects that might endanger the consumer. Supermarkets including Tesco, Aldi, Lidl, Asda and Morrisons are amongst those supermarkets who currently have urgent food recalls amid safety concerns. Customers should check their recent shop to see if any of these products are on the recall list.

If customers have any of these particular items in their cupboard or freezer, they should be returned to the store they were purchased from for a full refund.

The Food Standards Agency as well as the supermarkets’ websites have shared which food items have been recalled.

The latest recalls include breadsticks, cereal bars, pickle and lasagne.

Here is a list of the affected items.

Tesco

Tesco is recalling a cereal bar after the possible presence of Salmonella was discovered in several batches.

This recall is ongoing and customers who have recently bought the Eat Natural Brazil & Sultana with Peanuts and Almonds Bar 50g, should return the product to a Tesco store. 

No receipt is required to get a full refund on this item and no other products in the range are affected. 

The best before dates that customers need to check for include October 2020, December 2020, January 2021, February 2021, March 2021, April 2021, May 2021 and June 2021.

Aldi

Aldi are recalling food items due to the fear it may contain small pieces of metal.

The discount supermarket is urging customers to check their cupboards for any recent breadsticks they may have purchased by the brand Savour Bakes.

All batches are affected and customers are asked to return this product to the nearest store where they will be given a full refund.

Lidl

The Food Standards Agency as well as Lidl GB’s website has issued a recall for a certain batch of their sweetener tablets because of a substance inside that is not mentioned on the label.

A statement from the Food Standards Agency reads: “This product contains aspartame, (E951), (a source of phenylalanine) making it a possible health risk for sufferers of phenylketonuria (PKU).”

The substance inside that is not mentioned can provide a potential health risk for the sufferers of phenylketonuria.

The product is still safe for those who do not suffer from the genetic disorder.

What products are affected?

  • Pack size: 100 tablets
  • Batch code: L 91424 C
  • Best before: December 2022

Morrisons

Morrisons has several food recalls in place including lasagne and cereal bars.

Customers who have shopped in-store or online recently should check their cupboards and freezers for the affected items.

Kirsty’s Beef Lasagne (400g and 250g) are being recalled because they contain Gluten Free Oats which are not mentioned correctly on the ingredient list. 

This means the food item provides a potential health risk for anyone who suffers with an allergy or intolerance from Gluten Free Oats. 

What are the best before dates customers need to check for?

On the 400g pack customers need to check for a best before date from September 10 to October 24.

On the 250g pack customers need to check all use by dates from September 2 to October 19. 

The supermarket is also recalling the same line of cereal bars that Tesco is recalling.

Anyone who has purchased the Eat Natural Fruit & Nuts bars with sultanas, Brazil nuts and almonds should return them immediately to their local store.
