Asda, Sainsbury’s and Aldi have warned customers over some eggs sold in stores. This is the full list of affected batches.

British Lion eggs

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has issued advice on certain batches of eggs.

The products that could pose a risk to consumers are sold in Asda, Sainsbury’s and Aldi.

A post on the FSA website stated: “The FSA is issuing precautionary advice to consumers who have purchased a specific batch of British Lion eggs which may be contaminated with salmonella.

“Affected eggs can be identified by the batch code and the best before date stamped on the eggshell.”

Salmonella is a bacteria that can cause vomiting, fever and abdominal cramps.

This only affects egg products that are sold in a small number of stores in England and Wales.

All packs at risk have the batch code of 1UK15270.

Sainsbury’s has offered advice to customers asking them to cook the egg products thoroughly.

Alternatively, shoppers can return the items to stores for a refund.

A Sainsbury’s statement said: “Whilst the eggs are safe to consume if cooked thoroughly and handled correctly, customers wishing to return the affected batches to their nearest Sainsbury’s store may do so and will receive a full refund.”

The FSA also asked customers to cook the eggs properly to avoid getting ill.

Its website said: “As a precaution, consumers are advised to thoroughly cook the eggs listed in the table above, this means the egg yolks and whites should not be eaten runny. This will eliminate salmonella and avoid risk of illness.”

It also recommended storing eggs in the fridge, using them by the best before date, cleaning surfaces and equipment in contact with the eggs and washing hands when handling the eggs.

While customers do not need to return the products, the FSA explained shoppers who are concerned should contact the relevant retailer for more information on a refund.
