Food recalls issued by Asda, Sainsbury’s and Lidl over ‘serious health risks’

Recent food recall alerts by the UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) include a range of products sold in Sainsbury’s, Lidl, and Asda.

The supermarkets have withdrawn selected food items from their shelves and urged customers not to eat them if already purchased them.

The FSA regularly issues urgent alerts to supermarkets and customers who sell or purchase affected items.

Here’s the full list of products recently recalled by UK supermarkets.
