Four popular supermarkets are withdrawing certain items from shelves across Birmingham and further afield and offering full refunds.
Tesco, Asda, Aldi and Sainsbury’s have all issued food product recalls, reports the Daily Express.
The supermarket chains have withdrawn items from shelves including Tesco Free from Beef Lasagne and Aldi Savour Bakes Bread Sticks.
The Food Standards Agency has issued the precautionary warning amid allergy fears as well as the possible presence of metal and plastic in some items.
The products have been sold in stores this month and raise health and safety concerns.
Take a look at the full list below:
Tesco Free From Beef Lasagne
The ready meal has been recalled due to a possible allergy risk.
Milk may be contained in affected packs which is not mentioned on the label and could cause harm to those with an allergy or intolerance.
The affected packs are 430 grams with the use by date of June 21, 2020.
Posting on Twitter, Tesco wrote: “As a safety precaution, we’re recalling a certain batch of Tesco Free From Beef Lasagne 430g. This is due to the possible presence of milk.”
Fry’s Mushroom Country Style Pie
A packaging error means Fry’s Family Foods have warned about eating the pie as the food contains milk, chicken and ham which are not listed on the label.
This means the item is unsuitable for those with an intolerance to milk or who avoid eating meat.
The affected packs are 266 grams with the use by date of June 12, 2020.
Plant Pioneers Vegan Shroomballs
There is the possibility of plastic in this item causing a serious safety risk.
Packs that could be affected are 240 gram with any use by dates between June 3 and 6, 2020.
These should be returned to the store for a refund.
The Food Standards Agency website said: “Sainsbury’s has taken the precautionary step of recalling Plant Pioneers Vegan Shroomballs because some packs may contain small pieces of white plastic. The possible presence of plastic makes this product unsafe to eat.”
Savour Bakes Bread Sticks
Athenian Family Bakery has issued a warning about these bread sticks as they may contain small pieces of metal.
The packs affected are 125 grams with the batch codes 704888 and 49830 and any use by date.
A notice from Aldi says: “Our supplier, Athenian Family Bakery, is recalling this product as it may contain small pieces of metal.
“Customers are asked to return this product to the nearest store, where a full refund will be given.”
