Food recalls are issued when a product is unsafe to eat. Once a recall is announced by a company, brand, or supermarket, the item is usually withdrawn from shelves and customers are advised to return it to their local store.
Morrisons is the latest supermarket to recall a food product.
The item is unsafe to eat because it contains salmonella.
Salmonella symptoms include vomiting, diarrhoea, fever, and stomach cramps.
Food brand The Snaffling Pig has found traces of salmonella in its Salted Pork Scratchings.
These packs are sold in Morrisons stores in the UK, as well as on Ocado and Amazon.
Snaffling Pig Salted Pork Scratchings come in packs 45g in size and have a best before date of June 11, 2022.
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has stated the information on its website and advised customers on what they should do if they have already bought the product.
The FSA said: “If you have bought any of the above product do not eat it.

“Instead, return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.
“If you require further information, please email [email protected] or call on 020 3096 5200.”
It added that “point of sale notices will be displayed in retail stores that are selling this product”.
The Snaffling Pig’s notice said: “Snaffling Pig is recalling a small batch of our Perfectly Salted Pork Scratchings, due to the presence of salmonella.
“The safety and quality of our products, and wellbeing of our customers, is of utmost importance to us.
“This is an appropriate measure on that basis.
“Only 45g packs with a best before date of June 11, 20222, which is printed on the bottom left corner on the rear of the pack, are impacted.”
The brand added: “If you have purchased this product, please do not eat them.
“Instead, return the items to the store from which you purchased, for a full refund.”
Morrisons is not the only supermarket recalling food products this week due to serious health fears.
Waitrose is recalling its Prosciutto Cappelletti with a pack size of 310g, as well as its Essentials Cheese and Smoked Ham Tortelloni with a pack size of 300g.
The products are being recalled because of undeclared pistachio.
This means they are a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to pistachio, or nuts.
