Food recalls are not often issued but should be taken seriously. Items sold in Marks & Spencer, Lidl, Tesco and Costa Coffee have all been recalled.

Marks & Spencer

M&S Balanced For You Red Thai Chicken Curry

The retailer has recalled the ready meal as it contains milk not mentioned on the label.

This could cause a possible health risk to anyone who may be allergic to milk.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) website said: “Due to a packaging error, the Red Thai Chicken Curry was mis-packed with Aromatic Lamb Curry which contains milk.

“This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents.”

Anyone who has bought the product can return it to stores for a full refund.

Lidl GB

The discount supermarket chain has asked shoppers to check for a number of chicken products.

Salmonella contamination was found in some of the products in the batch which would make the products unsafe to eat.

Symptoms of salmonella include fever, sickness and abdominal cramps.

Red Hen Breaded Chicken Nuggets

The pack size 450 grams and best before date of end: February 2022 should be returned.

Red Hen Southern Fried Chicken Pops

Affected packs are 210 grams with the best before date of February 5, 2022.

A Lidl statement said: “If you have bought the above products, we advise you not to eat them. Instead, if you are already making an essential trip to a Lidl GB store you can return the item to the store for a full refund, with or without a receipt.

“Alternatively, please dispose of the product and email [email protected] including a photo of the affected product and Best Before Date and Lot Code.

“The Customer Services team will process this refund via letter.”

Costa Coffee

Jammy Rudolph Shortcake

The sweet treat has been recalled as it contains egg not mentioned on the label.

This could cause a possible allergy risk and customers can return the products to stores for a refund.

The affected packs are 62 grams with the best before date of January 7, 2021.


Tesco Finest Festive Fruit & Nut Selection

The festive treats have been recalled due to a packaging mix up.

This means they have been wrongly packaged and may contain sulphur dioxide not mentioned on the label.

A post on Tesco Twitter said: “We’re recalling some packs of Tesco Finest Festive Fruit & Nut Selection 225 grams as they’re in the Tesco Finest Belgian Dark Chocolate Brazil Nuts packaging.”

Those who have bought the product are also asked to return it to a Tesco store where they will be given a refund.
