Supermarkets have issued a new food recall notice on various food items including meatballs and meat. The shops affected in the latest recalls include the Co-op and Lidl and if customers have any of the recalled items, they are being urged to return the product as soon as possible.

The FSA as well as the supermarkets’ websites have shared details of which foods have been recalled. 

Food recalls are issued when a discovery is made or there are safety issues surrounding a product that might endanger the consumer.

Lidl GB is recalling Crownfield Wholegrain Wheat Bixies 36 as they may contain pieces of plastic.

This makes the product unsafe to eat and customers are urged to return it to a Lidl GB store for a full refund.

A receipt is not required in order to receive the refund.

Alternatively, customers can dispose of the product and email [email protected] with a photo of the affected product and best before date.

The customer services team will process this refund via a letter.

The retailer is also recalling its Irresistible Carrot Cake and Irresistible Coffee and Walnut Cake because they may contain pieces of glass.

The possible presence of glass makes these food items unsafe to eat.

If customers have bought the cakes, they are urged not to eat them and to instead return them to the store they were bought from for a full refund.

There are also a number of other food recalls currently in place. 

SFC have recently recalled a number of batches of their chicken products sold in Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons.

This has been put in place as salmonella has been found in some of the packs of chicken.

Salmonella can cause symptoms including sickness, abdominal cramps and fever.

SFC are recalling its Take-Home Boneless Bucket as well as its Chicken Poppets.
