A food recall is issued when there is a discovery made about a certain item that is deemed unsafe for the consumer. The latest food recall comes from Quorn Foods who is recalling a food product sold in various supermarkets.

The company is recalling its Quorn Vegetarian and Stuffing Slices (170g).

The recall was issued by the Food Standards Agency (FSA).

The FSA said: “The product contains wheat (gluten) making it a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to wheat or gluten.

“Quorn Foods is recalling the above product from customers and has contacted the relevant allergy support organisations, which will tell their members about the recall.

“The company has also issued a point-of-sale notice to its customers.

“These notices explain to customers why the product is  being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the product.”

Quorn Foods said: “This is an advisory notice that this product contains what, but a gluten free logo is included on pack in error.

“Customers that are allergic to wheat, have a gluten intolerance or Coeliac disease, are advised not to consume the product.

“If you have purchased Quorn Vegetarian Turkey and Stuffing Slices (170g) please bring it back to your nearest store where you will be given a full refund.”

The turkey and stuffing slices are sold in various different supermarkets including Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and Asda.

However, they are yet to update their websites with the recall.

All date codes are affected in the recall.

In other food recall news, Sainsbury’s is recalling its On the Go Spicy Chicken Pasta because it contains milk which is not mentioned on the label.

The FSA stated the product is “a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents”.

It added: “Due to a packaging error, some packs may contain cheese and tomato pasta not spicy chicken pasta.”

Sainsbury’s pasta pot is sold alongside other lunchtime snacks and dishes in its Meal Deal section.

It comes in a pack 275g in size and has a use by date of August 30, 2021.

Anyone who has purchased the pasta pot should return it to the store it was bought from for a full refund.

Sainsbury’s said: “For any concerns or queries or if you are unable to return the product to store, then please visit our website Sainsbury’ or contact our Careline on 0800 636262.

“No other products or date codes have been affected by this issue.

“Sainsbury’s would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.”
