A food recall is issued when a product is unsafe to eat. This could be due to allergy or health and safety fears.
Sainsbury’s is the latest supermarket to recall a food product due to it being unsafe to eat.
Because of an undeclared ingredient, the product could be harmful to some people with an intolerance or an allergy.
The food retailer is recalling its On the Go Spicy Chicken Pasta because it contains milk which is not mentioned on the label.
Both Sainsbury’s and the Food Standards Agency (FSA) have published details of the product, as well as advice to shoppers on what to do if they have already bought the item.
The FSA stated the product is “a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents”.
It added: “Due to a packaging error, some packs may contain cheese and tomato pasta not spicy chicken pasta.”
Sainsbury’s pasta pot is sold alongside other lunchtime snacks and dishes in its Meal Deal section.
It comes in a pack 275g in size and has a use by date of August 30, 2021.

The FSA advised: “If you have bought the above product and have an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents do not eat it.
“Instead return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.”
Sainsbury’s added: “As a precautionary measure, we are asking customers who have purchased the product with the Use By date above, who have an allergy or intolerance to Milk, not to eat it and to return it to their nearest Sainsbury’s store, where they will receive a full refund.
“For any concerns or queries or if you are unable to return the product to store, then please visit our website Sainsbury’s.co.uk/help or contact our Careline on 0800 636262.
“No other products or date codes have been affected by this issue.
“Sainsbury’s would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.”
This is not the only product recalled by the supermarket in recent days.
Last week, various savoury snacks were withdrawn from major supermarkets’ shelves.
ayto Group Ltd issued a food recall on a selection of its pork scratchings products because there were fears they may contain salmonella.
The products affected included four Mr Porky items, which are Mr Porky Original Scratchings, Mr Porky Crispy Strips, Mr Porky Crackles, and Mr Porky Prime Cut Scratchings.
Since the recall, a dozen people have been hospitalised after eating the products and suffering from salmonella poisoning, according to Public Health England (PHE).
More than a 100 people have fallen ill.
The items were sold at Britain’s major supermarkets, including Asda, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, and Iceland.
