Supermarkets issue food recalls when a discovery is made or there are safety issues surrounding a product that might endanger the consumer. Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and Boots all have a number of food recalls in place including potatoes and baby food. If customers have any of the affected items, they should return the product immediately to the store it was purchased from for a full refund.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) as well as the supermarkets’ websites shared details of the foods which have been recalled.

The latest recalls include potato skins as well as Aptamil baby food.

Here is a list of the affected items.


Asda is recalling a single date code of Plant Based Loaded Potato Skins because the product contains milk which is not mentioned on the label.

This means the product poses a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents.

The FSA listed the product and said: “The product has passed its ‘use by’ date, however it is suitable for home freezing.”

This means that the food item is no longer available to purchase, however customers should check their freezer in case they have it. 

Pack size: 262g

Customers do not need a receipt. 

Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and Boots

Supermarket giant Asda along with many other food stores are recalling Aptamil Multigrain Banana and Berry Cereal 7+ months.

The cereal may contain small pieces of blue plastic, making it unsafe to eat.

Pack size: 200g

Best before: July 7, 2021

The product usually costs around £3.

Asda and Sainsbury’s were listed in the original food recall and Waitrose and Boots are now also recalling the same product.

If customers have purchased the baby cereal with the best before date of July 7, 2021, customers need to return it to the store it was purchased from.

A receipt is required for proof of purchase at that store, and a full refund will be issued. 

A number of other food recalls have been made within the past week.

The Food Standards Agency is issuing precautionary advice to all customers who have purchased specific batches of British Lion eggs.

This is because they may contain salmonella.

People who have a salmonella infection may have a high fever and stomach cramps.

The affected supermarkets include Aldi, Asda and Sainsbury’s.

These eggs are not being recalled but the Food Standards Agency advises customers to always follow good hygiene and egg handling practises when using eggs including, cooking them properly, storing them in the fridge, using them by the best before date and washing hands before and after handling eggs.
