Tesco, Aldi and Costa recall popular foods – ‘don’t eat them’

Tesco, Aldi and Costa Coffee have recalled several items which could be potentially unsafe for consumption due to the presence of unlisted allergens.

Customers who shopped at one of these outlets were in turn asked to check their purchases for certain products, to prevent allergens from being unknowingly consumed.

The presence of eggs and tree nuts, such as walnuts, are among the ingredients that have not been listed on some items due to manufacturing errors – which could pose a threat to people with allergies and d intolerances.

Other contents dangerous to some include mustard and sulphites. The mirror reports that the Food Standards Agency (FSA) has published a list of specific items, with seven in total being recalled.

Customers who have purchased any of these products are asked to return them to their point of purchase for a full refund – with or without a receipt – if they are concerned about allergens.

Costa Coffee:

British Roast Chicken Salad Sandwich –

This sandwich is being recalled because it contains mustard not listed on the label, which makes it potentially harmful for those intolerant to the spice. The use by dates for this item of concern are September 11 to September 16 (inclusive).

No other Costa product would be affected.


Bramwells Tartar Sauce –

The best before date for this particular item is April 2023 and the size is 175g. The FSA advised customers: “If you have purchased the above product and are sensitive to sulfur dioxide and/or sulphites, do not eat it. Instead, return it to the store where it was purchased for a full refund.

“Aldi is recalling Bramwells Tartar Sauce because it contains sulphites which are not mentioned on the label. Due to poor packaging, Bramwells Tartar Sauce labels have been incorrectly applied to Bramwells Horseradish Sauce.

“This means the product poses a potential health risk to anyone sensitive to sulfur dioxide and/or sulphites.”

Aldi’s notice read: “Customers are asked to return this product to the nearest store where a full refund will be given. We apologize that this product did not meet our usual high standards and we thank you for your cooperation.”

The supermarket advised customers to visit aldi.co.uk or contact its customer service for more information.

Lotte Pepero Snowy –

The expiry date of this item is May 1 and May 2, 2023 and its pack size is 32g. These cookie sticks were recalled due to the presence of unlisted peanuts missing from the label.
