Lidl, Aldi and others warn of health risks: “Don’t eat”.

Food recalls have occurred in a number of supermarkets for a variety of reasons, including the presence of disease-causing bacteria in some products.

We’ve rounded up the ongoing product recalls you should know about.

If you have purchased any of the items below, you need to be aware of these potential health risks.

Lidl recall

Lidl has recalled one of its products because it may contain disease-causing bacteria.

The supermarket has issued a recall for the McEnnedy Corn Dogs sold there because Listeria monocytogenes was found in the product.

The bacteria can survive and even grow under refrigeration and cause listeriosis, which can last up to several weeks depending on the severity.

Symptoms include fever, vomiting, and headaches, and in some cases even convulsions.

In rare cases, the infection can lead to meningitis.

The affected products are sold in pack sizes of 530 g and have a best-before date of April 28, June 10 and August 10, 2024.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) warns anyone who has bought the product not to eat it.

Aldi recall

Aldi recalls The Deli Salami Selection (140g, consumption until: September 25, 2023) and The Deli Continental Selection (120g, consumption until: September 25, 2023).

According to the Food Standards Agency Aldi – in addition to publishing a recall – has contacted the relevant allergy support organizations who will inform their members of the recall.

The Supermarket The giant has also issued a point of sale notice to its customers.

The agency said: “These notices explain to customers why the products are being recalled and tell them what to do if they have purchased the products.”

The Food Standards Agency said: “These products may contain milk, making them a potential health risk for those with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk ingredients.”

Home Bargains recall

Buyers are warned against consuming a potentially deadly recalled protein powder.

Home Bargains has recalled Sci-Mx Nutrition Ultra Muscle Strawberry Flavor 1.5kg Bag with a best before date of March 2025.

Tests of the product found that it contained more than 5000 mg (5 g) of caffeine per serving.

If consumers followed the packaging instructions to consume two servings per day, they would receive a daily dose of more than 10,000 mg (10 g).

For most people, 10g of caffeine can be a fatal dose. However, doses as small as 3g have been found to be fatal for certain susceptible individuals.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) is warning anyone who has purchased the protein powder not to consume it.

Tina Potter, head of the FSA’s incident department, said: “High levels of caffeine can cause anxiety, insomnia, agitation, palpitations, diarrhea and agitation, and in those with a mental illness it can cause worsening psychosis.”

“In this case, the exceptionally high levels of caffeine could cause the consequences to be even more serious and possibly even fatal.”

Affected products can be identified using the batch code W110429, which can be found on the packaging next to the best-before date.

What is a product recall?

If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, it may be “withdrawn” (removed from shelves) or “recalled” (when customers are asked to return the product).

The FSA issues product withdrawal and recall information notices to inform consumers and local authorities about food-related issues.

In some cases, a “Food Alert for Action” is issued.

This will provide local authorities with details of specific actions to be taken on behalf of consumers. Lidl, Aldi and others warn of health risks: “Don’t eat”.
