Full list of Asda, Aldi and Tesco products recalled over E. coli fears

People have been warned "do not eat" after more than 60 products have been pulled from the shelves of major UK supermarkets over E. coli fears. Products from Asda, Aldi, Sainsbury's and Tesco were among dozens taken down.

Shoppers across Britain are being urged not to consume a variety of wraps, sandwiches, and salads following an outbreak of the severe gastrointestinal illness that has already seen dozens hospitalised. Amidst concerns that a "nationally distributed food item" or "multiple food items" could be the source of the outbreak, several manufacturers have voluntarily recalled products as a precautionary measure, advising customers not to eat them.

The most recent recall involves the THIS! brand's vegan chicken and bacon wrap sold at WHSmith, which, despite no detection of E. coli in the product, has prompted the Food Standards Agency (FSA) to advise anyone who purchased the item up to and including June 18 to refrain from eating it and return it to their nearest store for a full refund.

This follows closely on the heels of recalls by Greencore Group and Samworth Brothers Manton Wood, who have taken back various sandwiches, wraps, and salads due to similar worries.

Other retailers affected by the recalls include Sainsbury's, Asda, Aldi, Morrisons, Co-op, and Boots.

The news of the E. coli outbreak first broke earlier this month when the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) reported that 113 individuals had contracted the illness and 37 had been admitted to hospital with a rare strain known as Shiga toxin-producing E.

coli O145 (STEC).

As of 11th June, an additional 98 cases linked to the STEC O145 outbreak in the UK have been reported, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 211.

STEC infection can lead to unpleasant and sometimes severe symptoms, including bloody diarrhoea, abdominal pain, and fever. In extreme cases, it can cause organ damage, such as kidney failure.

Darren Whitby, Head of Incidents at the FSA, stated: "Sandwich manufacturers are taking a precautionary measure to recall various sandwiches, wraps, subs and rolls to identify the cause of an ongoing outbreak caused by STEC. This is a complex investigation, and we have worked swiftly with the relevant businesses and the local authorities concerned to narrow down the wide range of foods. The FSA is here to ensure that food is safe. If there are products on the market that are not, we won't hesitate to take action to remove them."

If a food product is found to be unfit for sale, it may be withdrawn - meaning it's removed from the shelves - or recalled, where customers are asked to return the product.
