Lidl Recall

Lidl has issued a “do not eat” warning and is recalling one of its Deluxe products because it contains milk, which is “not emphasised” in bold on the label.

This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents, reports the Food Standards Agency (FSA).

The recalled item is Lidl’s Deluxe Red Cabbage with Apple, Dried Cranberries & Spices, with a pack size of 480g - all date and batch codes are included.

No other Deluxe products in Lidl GB stores are affected by this recall.

Sainsbury's Recall

Sainsbury’s has issued a recall and “do not eat” warning after disease causing bacteria linked to meningitis potentially contaminated one of its products.

The supermarket giant has recalled its Taste the Difference Chorizo Iberico Ring because Listeria monocytogenes have been found in some of the products.

The bacteria can survive and even grow under refrigeration and can cause Listeriosis which can last up to several weeks depending on the severity.

Symptoms include fever, vomiting and headaches, with some cases even resulting in convulsions.

In rare cases, the infection can lead to meningitis.

The affected products come in pack sizes of 200g and have best before dates between November 23 and January 16.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) issued a “do not eat” warning to anyone who has already bought the product.

A spokesman said: “Sainsbury’s is recalling the above product. Point of sale notices will be displayed in all retail stores that are selling this product. These notices explain to customers why the product is being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the product.

“Some people are more vulnerable to listeria infections, including those over 65 years of age, pregnant women and their unborn babies, babies less than one month old and people with weakened immune systems.

“If you have bought any of the above product do not eat it. Instead, return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund. For more information visit Sainsburys.co.uk/help or contact their Careline on 0800 028 8303.”
