Tesco, Morrison's, and Waitrose shoppers are being warned not to eat certain products that have now been pulled from the shelves. They include chocolate bars wrongly labelled as not containing nuts, chicken which might contain metal, and inedible cornflakes.

People who have bought affected items are being advised not to consume them and to instead return them to the stores they were bought from for a full refund. The Food Standards Agency published the warnings advising shoppers what to do if they had bought one of the affected products.

The FSA said: "Morrison's is recalling Morrison's Wafer Thin Cooked Chicken because it may contain small pieces of metal. The possible presence of metal makes these products unsafe to eat. If you have bought the above product do not eat it. Instead, return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund." Below are all of the affected products.

Morrison's chicken slices

The affected chicken comes in a pack size of 170g or 400g. It includes all use by dates up to and including June 16, 2024. The store said in its recall notice: "Please do not seat this product and return it to your nearest store for a full refund. We don't need a receipt.

"No other products are affected by this issue. We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause and assure customers of our continuing commitment to the highest standard of product quality and safety."

Morrison's BREW YORK - Juice Forsyth tropical IPA

Morrison's is recalling the BREW YORK - Juice Forsyth beer. Customers who have purchased 440ml cans with a use-by date of July 23, 2024 and gyle number 1036 should return the products to a Morrisons store to get their money back.

Tesco multipack chocolate bars

Meanwhile Tesco is recalling a number of its Tesco multipack chocolate bars because of undeclared peanuts. The FSA said: "The products contain peanuts making them a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to peanuts."

The affected products are:

  • Tesco Nutty Nougat Caramel Chocolate Bars Multipack: 6 x 40g; best before February 28, 2025

  • Tesco Dreamy Caramel Chocolate Bars Multipack: 6 x 40g; best before January 31, 2025

  • Tesco Dreamy Caramel Chocolate Bars Multipack: 6 x 40g; best before February 28, 2025

The FSA advised: "If you have bought the above products do not eat them. Instead, return them to any Tesco store for a full refund. For more information contact Tesco Customer Services on 0800 505 555."

Tesco apologised to customers and said there had been a "mispack". It said: "Due to a mispack there is a risk of peanuts not being declared as an ingredient in the product. This poses a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to peanuts. Please do not consume this product and return it to store where a full refund will be given. No receipt is required."

Tesco chocolate Kellogg's Cornflakes

Tesco bosses said Kellogg's is recalling Kellogg's Corn Flakes Chocolate Flavour because they may contain small hard lumps of food which have formed in the product. This makes it unsafe to eat. The affected product is the Kellogg's Cornflakes chocolate flavour which is the 450g pack.

The company has issued a recall notice to its customers explaining why the action is being taken and telling them what to do if they have bought it. If you have bought these Cornflakes do not eat them. Instead, dispose of the product and contact Kellogg's for a full refund.

Waitrose BREW YORK - Juice Forsyth tropical IPA

Like Morrison's, Waitrose is recalling its BREW YORK - Juice Forsyth, a tropical IPA, saying they "have had reports that some cans are pouring with excessive carbonation, bulging the can, and even bursting in some instances". Customers who have purchased cans with a use-by date of July 23, 2024, are advised: "Do not consume, package up item, return the product to your local Waitrose & Partners branch for a refund". The cans are 440ml in size and have a gyle number 1036.

Waitrose Crosta & Mollica sugo alla norma aubergine, ricotta and tomato pasta sauce

Waitrose has also pulled a pasta sauce from sale after Crosta & Mollica recalled its Crosta & Mollica sugo alla norma aubergine, ricotta and tomato because it may contain pieces of glass, making it unsafe to eat. Affected items are 340g jars with the batch code Y008B, and a best-before date of January 8, 2027. Shoppers are urged to return the jars to store for a full refund.
