A number of products are currently being recalled from major retailers over safety concerns.
The affected items include ice cream and cereal which have now been pulled from shelves.
The potential issues have led the products to be deemed unsafe for consumption in the UK.
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) is warning against further consumption – with anyone who has purchased the items encouraged to contact the manufacturer to request a refund.
So which products are currently being recalled? This is what you should know about them.
Nutricia is recalling a brand of its multigrain cereal which was sold at a number of supermarkets.
Aptamil Multigrain Banana and Berry Cereal 7+ months may contain small pieces of blue plastic.
The item therefore poses a potential health risk to consumers and this is the reason for the recall.
The affected product comes in a 200g batch and has the best before date of July 7, 2021.
Asda is recalling a single date code of its Plant-Based Loaded Potato Skins (262g) from its stores.
The product contains milk which hasn’t been declared on the label – posing a potential health risk.
The item is unsuitable for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to the ingredient or its constituents.
The affected date code was November 12, 2020 which means that the ‘use by’ date has now passed.
The potato skins are however suitable for home freezing so customers may still have them at home.
Diageo Great Britain has taken the precaution of recalling its Guinness Draught 0.0% (non-alcoholic).
The recall is due to the possible presence of mould in the product which poses a potential health risk.
The FSA states that mould doesn’t usually cause food poisoning but it could make such items unsafe.
The affected product is the 440ml can (6 x 4 pack) with a date of either 9th, 17th or 24th August 2021.
The batch is said to have been sold at a number of retailers including Tesco, Morrisons and Waitrose.
Twix ice cream
Iceland is recalling Twix Barres Glacées (Ice-Cream Bars) because of undeclared allergen ingredients.
The product contains milk, wheat (gluten) and soya which aren’t mentioned in English on the label.
They might also contain almonds, hazlenuts and peanuts which are similarly not declared on packaging.
The Twix ice-cream bars therefore pose a health risk to those with allergies to milk, gluten, soya or nuts.
The affected product has the best before date of June 30th, 2021 – with the item coming in a pack of 18.
