Big Four grocer, Tesco is drawing a certain daily use of its Hog Roast Pork with Apple Sauce.
Possible presence of salmonella bacteria was found in packages with expiry dates of: January 6, 9, 15 and 17, 2022, February 6, 2022, March 8 and 9, 2022 .
While some of these days may have passed, it’s a good idea to check your freezer in case you’ve put it away.
The Tesco Hog Roast Style Pork with Apple Sauce comes packaged in 425g and costs £4.
Meanwhile, rival supermarket Waitrose is recalling its own private label Green Pesto with Basil with an expiration date of 27 February 2022.
This one comes in a pack size of 145g and costs £2.25.
If you have purchased either of these products, you should return them to your nearest supermarket for a full refund. You won’t need a receipt to get your money back.
The presence of salmonella bacteria can cause fever, diarrhea, and abdominal cramps.
However, Tesco and Waitrose are not the only companies that have issued recalls for the bug in recent days.
Abbott has recalled lots of Elecare Similac and Alimentum Similac infant formula powder because of possible salmonella and Cronobacter sakazakii bacteria.
Both products are foods used for special medical purposes for infants. You can see all the best dates before the date and batch codes were obtained on Food Standards Agency (FSA) website.
Freshers Food Ltd is also recalling some pork products sold in Morrisons and Ocado because of salmonella concerns, while Dogs Choice UK is selling some of its frozen dog food.
In most cases, especially for supermarket products, you will not be asked to bring a receipt when returning recalled products.
For branded items, the manufacturer will usually lead the recall, so you’ll need to check with them to see who will issue a refund.
Again, you may just need to return it to the store where you bought it.
Other food recalls to watch out for include Chocolate sold at Aldi contains eggs which is not mentioned on the label.
This means that the product promotes health for people who are allergic to eggs.
Asda, Boots, Morrisons and Tesco are recalling Nuby Incredible Gulp and Super Quench mugs for fear they may pose a choking hazard.
The cups were purchased between November 1, 2021 and January 14, 2022, with batch codes WF10V and WG08V being recalled by Nuby.
The same issue affects cups purchased directly from the Nuby UK website.
