Asda and Tesco issue urgent recall warning to customers over sickness fears
9th December 2020

Two major UK supermarkets have issued urgent product recall warnings to customers over fears it could make them sick.

Tesco and Asda have both issued safety notices about the affected products, and their potential health risks.

Anyone who has purchased any of the products should return them to store immediately, as it could put them at risk.

One product has been recalled after they were found to contain Listeria monocytogenes, which can cause listeriosis.

This causes flu-like symptoms, but in extreme cases it can cause life-threatening illnesses such as sepsis or meningitis.

Another item has been recalled over fears they could trigger allergies after they were labelled incorrectly.

Here is a full list of the items being recalled, as reported by Plymouth Herald.


Spicy Chorizo Slices

The FSA said: "Tesco has recalled its 16 Spicy Chorizo Slices 80g because the product contains Listeria monocytogenes."The recall affects 80g packs of 16 Spicy Chorizo slices with a use by date of December 19, 2020.

Tesco said: "Tesco is recalling the above product. Product recall notices will be issued to explain to customers why the product is being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the product. Please see attached notice."
