Aldi, Sainsbury’s & Lidl issue urgent “do not eat” warning as stores told to remove items including chocolate

Shoppers at Aldi, Sainsbury’s and Lidl have been issued an urgent “do not eat” warning after some products were recalled.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has recalled several products affecting customers at Sainsbury’s, Aldi and Lidl. The regulator has issued a “do not eat” warning over fears they could pose a risk to customers.

The recall includes chocolate, guacamole and a pasta dish. Some products pose a health risk as they contain ingredients not stated on the packaging while one could contain pieces of plastic.
