Supermarkets including Tesco, Morrisons and Aldi have issued important food recall notices this month.
Shoppers should be aware of all pulled products so they don’t eat or drink something that could potentially be dangerous.
Items that have been recalled in June include baby food at Tesco that may contain pieces of plastic, while Lidl has pulled kids’ sausage slices following a risk they may have been contaminated by metal dust.
Other items at stores including Morrisons and Aldi have been removed from shelves in case they cause allergic reactions.
When a product has been recalled, you should be able to return it to the place you purchased it, or the manufacturer, for a full refund.
In most cases, you do not need to have your receipt to get your money back.
For all product recalls, you can check the Food Standards Agency website which lists all the potentially dangerous items that have been removed.

Use by: June 16, 2021
