Lidl and Tesco issue urgent food recalls over salmonella and plastic fears

Lidl, Tesco, Morrisons and Sainsbury’s are among supermarket chains urgently recalling food products after the Food Standards Agency (FSA) issued a safety alert.

The FSA warned Lidl’s Birchwood Beef and Pork Mince and Co-op’s Ginger and Dark Chocolate Cookies "may contain pieces of plastic".

Unisnacks Europe is also recalling Meiji Hello Panda Cocoa Biscuits with Matcha Green Tea Flavoured Filling, which is sold in Tesco.

The biscuits contain peanut, which is not mentioned on the label and poses a risk to anyone with an allergy to nuts.

Sainsbury's and Morrisons have several products to recall, with favourites SFC Chicken Poppets and Take Home Boneless Bucket Pack on the list.

The products were recalled over salmonella fears, which can cause fever, diarrhoea and abdominal cramps.

If you have bought the products, do not eat them. Instead, return the items to your nearest store for a full refund.

Point-of-sale notices will be displayed in all retail stores that are selling these products.

For a full list of products, visit the FSA website. You can also find a list of all items mentioned in this article below.
