Food products from Supermarkets Asda, Tesco, Iceland and Lidl are the subject recalls as they could pose a risk to customers’ health.

The items listed, which may have been on sale across Coventry and Warwickshire, should either be returned to the store where you bought them or thrown in the bin.

Nottinghamshire Live reports that meatballs and Twix ice-cream bars are among the items people are being told not to eat.

One item being recalled is a type of chorizo product at Tesco that could contain a bacteria that can lead to serious infections.

A statement on the Food Standards Agency website says: “Symptoms caused by this organism can be similar to flu and include high temperature, muscle ache or pain, chills, feeling or being sick and diarrhoea.

“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.”

Product recalls are often issued if ingredients have not been properly listed.

That scenario can leave allergy sufferers facing the risk of becoming unwell by eating things they did not know were in the food.

The other main reason for a recall is when there are fears something harmful such as plastic or bacteria has made its way into the food.

Tesco 16 Spicy Chorizo Slices

Tesco apologises to our customers for any inconvenience caused. If you require further details, please contact Customer Services directly on: UK 0800 505 555 ROl 1850 744 844.”
