Tesco, Lidl and Aldi warning with customers told not to drink beer or Irn Bru

By Kate Lally

It's time to check those fridges, freezers and cupboards again after a number of safety warnings were issued about food from supermarkets.

Tesco, Aldi, Lidl and others have recalled a number of items in recent weeks, with customers urged not to eat them but instead return them to store for a full refund. You do not need to have your receipt to get your money back.

When a product is recalled, for any reason, the Food Safety Agency (FSA) shares details on what you should do if you have bought the item, as well as detailed information on why the product is being pulled from shelves.

A number of products have been recalled in recent weeks, with some having used by dates as far as January 2024. With that in mind, it could be worth checking your kitchen cupboards, fridge and freezer to see if you have any of the items.

Due to a large-scale salmonella scare, many of the major supermarkets, and some restaurants, have pulled chicken products. The list of products in full can be found below.
