Tesco, Asda and Iceland recall dozens of products with warning not to eat chocolate and butter

Shoppers have been warned to check their cupboards over Easter after some of the UK’s biggest supermarkets recalled dozens of products over health fears. Removing chocolate from the shelves at Easter may not be the most popular decision, but Asda, Tesco, Morrisons, Waitrose, Iceland and Aldi have done so due to concern over salmonella poisoning by certain products.

As reported by Echo of Liverpool, supermarkets have recalled a number of items in recent weeks, with customers being urged to return them to the store for a full refund. You do not need to have your receipt to get your money back.

When a product is recalled, for whatever reason, the Food Safety Agency (FSA) shares details of what you should do if you purchased the item, along with detailed information about why the product is removed from the shelves.
