Others have possibly been contaminated with plastic.

In some cases, the products contain ingredients such as eggs, which are not correctly mentioned on the label, The Mirror reports.

When a product is recalled, the Food Standards Agency shares details on what you should do if you have bought the item, as well as detailed information on why the product is being pulled from shelves.

It said anyone with any of the below items should visit their nearest supermarket for a full refund or exchange.

German discounter Aldi said customers who have purchased its Harvest Morn Crisp Rice cereal should return it to stores urgently.

The product has been found to contain pieces of plastic, rendering the product unsafe to eat. It affects 375g boxes with batch codes 10470953, 10480953, 10490953 and the November 2021 expiry date.


Morrisons is recalling Choco Crackles because some packs have been found to contain pieces of plastic.

The grocer said it affects 375g boxes with an expiry date of November 2021.

"The presence of pieces of plastic makes this product unsafe to eat," the Food Standards Agency said.


Asda is recalling its two packs of Original Chicken Chargrills because of traces of salmonella detected in the product.

It affects 170g pack sizes with the batch code 31120953 and an expiry date of September 5, 2022.


Tesco is recalling Tesco Tzatziki because it contains undeclared egg.

Due to a manufacturing error, several batches have been wrongly packaged as Tesco Sour Cream and Chive Dip, instead.

This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to egg.

The recall affects 200g tubs with a use by date of 12/4/21.

Sainsbury’s is taking the precautionary action of recalling Taste the Difference Medjool dates because they might be contaminated with Hepatitis A.

The Big Four grocer said all 200g and 500g packs are affected. If you have purchased the product return it to stores for a full refund.

"These products might be contaminated with Hepatitis A. Symptoms caused by Hepatitis A usually include fever, nausea, abdominal cramps, diarrhoea, dark-coloured urine and jaundice (a yellowing of the skin)," the Food Standards Agency said.

Point of sale notices have been displayed in all Sainsbury's stores that stock the dates.
