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 the current active recalls.

Tesco

The supermarket giant is the latest major retailer to state it is recalling one of its products.

Tesco’s own brand Green Thai Style Sauce is being withdrawn from shelves because it contains milk which is not mentioned on the label.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) stated on its website: “This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents.”

The product comes in a pack 180g in size and has a use by date of November 21, 2021.

The FSA and Tesco also both advised customers on what they should do if they have already bought the product.

Tesco 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.”

The supermarket added: “Tesco apologises to our customers for any inconvenience caused.

“If you require further details, please contact Customer Services directly on: 0800 505 555.”

Co-op

Last week, Co-op released a statement to recall a salmon product.

The supermarket is recalling its Salmon En Croute because it contains undeclared prawns (crustaceans).

Due to a packaging error from the factory, some packs have been labelled incorrectly.

This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to prawns and/or crustaceans.

Co-op is urging anyone who has bought the product to return it to their nearest store.

The retailer said: “Return product to nearest Co-op store for a refund, or if you are self-isolating or shielding, please contact our Customer Careline.”

The best number to call is 0800 0686 727.

The supermarket added: “We apologise for any inconvenience caused.”

Iceland

Iceland is another supermarket that has recalled a food product in recent days.

The frozen specialists are recalling their Ready to Eat Tikka Chicken Breast Slices because it contains milk which is not mentioned on the label.

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

Iceland issued a notice, saying: “As a voluntary precaution we are recalling Iceland Ready to Eat Tikka Chicken Breast Slices 115g as this product may contain undeclared milk allergen and therefore poses a potential risk to those people that have an allergy or intolerance to milk.”

The supermarket added: “If you have bought any of this product – you should not consume it.

“Check if you have bought any of the affected product.

“You can do this by taking a photo of the notice or writing down the details at home.

“Please return to any Iceland store where a full refund will be given.

“No receipt is required.”
