Check those cupboards - a string of safety warnings has been issued about food from major supermarkets.

Aldi, Lidl and Waitrose have issued recall warnings this week over major food poisoning fears.

From frozen chicken which potentially contains salmonella to products containing nuts but failing to declare it - there are a string of potential pitfalls that could be lurking in your larder, the Mirror reports.

The Food Standards Agency said some of the products contain ingredients that are not mentioned on the label, while others could contain harmful bacteria.

When a product is recalled, for any reason, 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.
