Food recalls are issued when a product is unsafe to eat. Usually, a brand or a retailer recalls the item, and the Food Standards Agency (FSA) also announces the news on its website.

This week, the FSA has released multiple new or updated food recalls.

One of these is from Waitrose.

The food retailer is recalling its Chicken Kofta Kebabs with Spicy Zhoug because of undeclared milk.

The product contains milk but it is not mentioned on the label, meaning that it could be harmful to those with a milk allergy or intolerance if eaten.

The FSA detailed on its website: “Due to a packaging error some packs may have been filled with an incorrect product.

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

The product affected comes in a pack 110g in size and has a best before date of 27 May 2021.

If customers have already bought the kebabs, they are advised to take them back to their local Waitrose store for a full refund.

In its notice to customers, Waitrose outlined the steps they should take next.

The supermarket said: “If you have an allergy to milk do not consume.

“Package up item.

“Return the product to your local Waitrose branch for a full refund.”

Waitrose added: “We apologise that it has been necessary to recall this product and for the inconvenience caused.”

The FSA also recommended customers on what to do if they have already bought the product.

The organisation stated: “If you have bought the above product and have an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents, do not eat it.

“Instead package up the item and return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.”

WH Smith also issued a food recall this week.

The retailer is recalling Simpleas Sea Salt and Balsamic Vinegar Pea Snacks sold at its shops.

The crisps are unsafe to eat because they contain ingredients which are not mentioned on the label.

Customers who have already bought the product should therefore take it back to their local WH Smith store for a full refund.

The company has stated that shoppers do not need a receipt.
