Tesco is the latest supermarket to issue a food recall. A food recall is when there is a problem with a product meaning it should not be sold. Instead, it is withdrawn – taken off the shelves – and customers are then asked to return the product to the store. Here are all the details.
Tesco is recalling Tesco Hog Roast Style Pork with Apple Sauce.
The product is currently £4, but is on offer as part of a Clubcard deal; any two for £6 on selected Tesco meat products 320g-502g.
The product is being recalled because the crackling crumb sachet within the pack may contain Salmonella.
Symptoms caused by salmonella usually include fever, diarrhoea and abdominal cramps.

About product recalls and withdrawals:
“The Food Standards Agency (FSA )issues Product Withdrawal Information Notices and Product Recall Information Notices to let consumers and local authorities know about problems associated with food.
“In some cases, a ‘Food Alert for Action’ is issued.
“This provides local authorities with details of specific action to be taken on behalf of consumers.”
