If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, it can be “withdrawn” (taken off the shelves) or “recalled” (when customers are asked to return the product).
Asda, Aldi and Sainsbury’s have carried out a number of product recalls in recent weeks.
The supermarkets are warning people not to eat the products and to return them to the store instead.
We have compiled the latest product recalls.
The Food Standards Agency issues “Product Withdrawal Information Notices” and “Product Recall Information Notices” to inform consumers and local authorities about food-related problems.
Affected eggs can be identified by the batch code and the best before date stamped on the egg shell.
