SHOPPERS at Aldi, Sainsbury’s and Lidl have been warned after supermarkets were forced to remove some food from their shelves.
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has recalled several products.
The regulator has issued “do not eat” warnings for many items it says pose a risk to customers.
If you have purchased any of the products below, do not eat them.
Instead, return them to the store and you’ll get a full refund – even without your receipt.
Sainsbury’s has issued a recall for Mexican-style Cheddar with a best before date of June 12, June 22 and June 23.
The affected products have a pack size of 200g.
Symptoms caused by Salmonella bacteria usually include fever, diarrhea, and abdominal cramps.
If you have any questions or concerns please call Sainsbury’s customer care line on 0800 636 262 or visit help.sainsburys.co.uk.
While Tesco has recalled the product Somerset Capricorn Goat Cheese 85g, due to possible Listeria monocytogenes bacteria.
If you bought one with batch code 101 and best before May 26, don’t eat it.
Instead, return it to the Tesco store where a full refund will be given.
Oh my God! products
Oh my God! has recalled some Pakora and Falafel Sweet Potato products because they may contain gluten that is not stated on the label.
This means that these products may pose a health risk to anyone with celiac disease and/or a gluten allergy or intolerance.
Supermarkets such as Asda, Aldi, Tesco and Morrisons all carry these items.
Here are the products you need to return and their best before dates:
- Gosh Sweet Potato Pakora with Red Pepper, Cumin & Chilli, 171g, 200g, 256g, 300g – through and including June 9
- Gosh Sweet Potato Pakora with Red Pepper, 200g, 700g – up to and including June 9
- The Deli Sweet Potato Pakora, 200g – all date
- Deli Butternut Squash, Tomato & Basil Falafel, 200g – all day
- Deli Moroccan Falafel, 200g – all day
If you have purchased the items then the FSA recommends contacting Gosh! on firstname.lastname@example.org for a full refund.
What are my rights to the refund?
If you are returning a recalled product, your right to a refund depends on whether the defect made the product unsafe.
Sometimes a business will repair the product, such as installing a new part. But this should be done for you.
If a defect makes a product unsafe to use — and difficult to correct — the Consumer Guarantees Act says you may have the right to refuse the product and request a replacement or refund.
You can read more about your rights regarding the recalled product in our guide.
Tesco and Superdrug have previously had to urgently recall several products due to concerns they may contain metal fragments.
The product recall applies to Tesco’s whey proteins in strawberry and chocolate flavors.
