Food recalls are issued when a product is unsafe for customers to use. For example, if an item contains an ingredient not mentioned on the label, it could cause harm to someone with allergies.
“Point of sale notices will be displayed in all retail stores that are selling this product.
“This notice explains to customers why the product is being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the product.”
In the notice, Asda told customers: “If you have purchased Maple Flavour Pork Belly Slices with the above use by date, please bring it back to your nearest store where you will be given a full refund.
“You do not need your receipt.”
“Instead, return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.”
Asda is not the only supermarket to recall food products in recent days.
A product sold in Tesco and Sainsbury’s, as well as Asda, is being withdrawn from shelves due to undeclared ingredients.
Flying Goose Sriracha Mayo Sauce is being recalled because it contains mustard and soya not mentioned on the packaging.
The sauce’s pack size is 445ml and its best before date is August 28, 2022.
Customers who have already bought the product are urged to return it to stores for a full refund.
