Food recalls are issued when a product is unsafe for customers to use. For example, if an item contains an ingredient not mentioned on the label, it could cause harm to someone with allergies. Here is the full list of current active food recalls in major British supermarkets.
Tesco is recalling its own brand Green Thai Style Sauce because it contains milk which is not mentioned on the label.
The product comes in a pack 180g in size and has a use by date of November 21, 2021.
In its notice to customers, Tesco said: “We have been made aware that one date code of Tesco Green Thai Style Sauce 180g may contain milk which is not declared on the packaging.
“The product could pose a safety risk to those people with an allergy or intolerance to milk.”
The supermarket giant went on to explain what customers should do if they have already bought the product.
It said: “Please do not consume this product if you have an allergy to milk, return the affected product to store where a full refund will be given.
“No receipt is required.”
Tesco is also recalling two types of stuffed mushrooms because they contain gluten which is not mentioned on their labels.
The affected products are on sale in Northern Irish Tesco branches only.
One mushroom product is ‘The Kitchen’ Chorizo & Oak Smoked Cheddar Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms, from U.M.I Foods.
The other, from the same brand, is ‘Harvest & Made’ Mini Stuffed Mushrooms with Oak smoked cheddar and sundried tomato.
These products come in packs 200g in size and are also being withdrawn from Sainsbury’s stores in Northern Ireland.
If customers have already bought the products, they should return them to their nearest Tesco or Sainsbury’s store for a full refund.
As well as stuffed mushrooms, Sainsbury’s is actively recalling its own brand Hypoallergenic Recipe Complete Dry Cat Food.
The supermarket said: “We are supporting an investigation by the food and veterinary authorities into a possible safety issue affecting cats.
“We are not willing to take any risks where the safety of our products is concerned and so we are asking customers who have purchased these products not to use them and to return the item to their nearest Sainsbury’s store for a full refund when they next visit.
“For any concerns or queries or if you are unable to return the product to store, then please visit our website Sainsburys.co.uk/help or contact our Careline on 0800 636262.”
The food retailer is recalling its Thrive Fish Pie because of an undeclared egg.
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) said: “Waitrose is recalling Waitrose Thrive Fish Pie because it contains egg which is not mentioned on the label.
“As a result of a packaging error some packs contain a beef lasagne with egg as an ingredient but which is not declared on the label.
“This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to egg.”
The fish pie comes in a pack 250g in size and has a best before date of March 2023.
Customers who have already bought the product should return it to “your local Waitrose & Partners branch for a refund”.
Morrisons is currently recalling its own brand Milk Chocolate Amour Ice Creams because there is a risk that some packs may contain pieces of plastic.
The ice creams come in packs of three and are 120ml in size.
Morrisons stated on its website: “Please do not eat this product and return it to your nearest store for a full refund.
“We don’t need a receipt.”
