Food recall roundup as warnings issued for stuffing, cheese and chocolates

Supermarkets and major brands have been caught up in recent food recalls caused by the contamination of products and the presence of undeclared allergens.

Mars Wrigley chocolates, Tesco stuffing and cheese brands which are popular in Christmas hampers are all included in the active recalls.

Advice from the Food Standards Agency (FSA) to people who have purchased any of the affected products is to avoid eating them and instead, return them unopened to the store where they got them.

No receipt is required to receive a full refund and retailers have issued apologies to customers for the inconvenience.

Various products that include cocoa-coated, raisin, orange, coffee, Malteser, chocolate and toffee-filled balls may be “unsafe to eat”, according to the FSA.

Mrs Kirkham’s Lancashire Cheese

The FSA has urged the public not to eat five cheeses because of a deadly E. Coli risk. Route des Terroirs recalled Morbier Maison Monts & Terroirs Chalet De Vevy Raw Cows’ Milk Cheese due to the presence of Shiga toxin-producing E. Coli in some batches.

All these cheeses might be contaminated with Shiga toxin-producing E. coli.
