Popular supermarkets including Asda and Lidl urgently recall food

Supermarkets are urging customers not to eat these products in the latest food recall warning.

Shops including Asda, Lidl, Tesco, Spar, Holland & Barrett and Iceland are recalling products and warning their customers not to eat them because of health and safety concerns.

If a food recall occurs then a company will remove a food product from the market because there is a chance the food could be contaminated or mislabelled.

If there is a problem with a food product then it should not be sold.

It might be taken off the shelves (withdrawn) or ‘recalled’ (when customers are asked to return the product).

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has issued the latest recalls this week to let consumers and local authorities know about the problems associated with the food.
