Tesco, Asda, Morrisons and M&S issue an urgent recall on products including Lindt chocolate, chicken and sausage rolls over contamination and labelling fears
- Lindt accidentally sent their strawberry cheesecake bars out in the wrong wraps
- Morrisons sent chocolate-covering ice cream out with plastics inside of them
- M&S had to recall chicken wings and sausage rolls for incorrect packaging
Four large supermarket chains have been forced to recall a slew of items over incorrect date labelling, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) has said.
Items such as Lindt chocolate, pre-cooked chicken and sausage rolls have been added to the FSA’s recall list along with reasons.
The recall at Tesco, Asda, Marks & Spencer, Ocado, Waitrose and Morrisons will entitle shoppers to a full refund on their items with or without a receipt.
Some of the items are being recalled for a failure to list allergens like soya and wheat.
Consumers are being asked to check the list of items on the FSA website to see if they are at risk.
The list includes which produces are affected, their picture, pack size, used-by date and some batch codes.
Here are some of the affected items:
Lindt Lindor Salted Saramel Chocolate Bar
A packaging error meant that some bars contain the Lindt HELLO Strawberry Cheesecake Bar.
This bar contains wheat which is not mentioned on the packaging.
This means the item is potentially hazardous to those with gluten allergies and intolerances.
