Food recalls are issued when a product is unsafe for customers to use. For example, if an item contains an ingredient not mentioned on the label, it could cause harm to someone with allergies. Here is the full list of the latest supermarket food recalls.
Sainsbury’s currently has four active recalls.
It is recalling the Original SFC Bargain Box due to it containing an ingredient not mentioned on the label.
The product contains buttermilk which is not declared on the packaging.

“We are asking all customers who have an intolerance to dairy not to consume it and to return it to their nearest Sainsbury’s store where they will receive a full refund.
“No other products have been affected by this issue.”
The food retailer is also recalling Quorn’s Vegetarian Turkey and Stuffing Slices, which come in packs 170g in size, due to the presence of wheat which is incorrectly declared on the packaging as gluten free.
Another product being recalled is Sainsbury’s On the Go Spicy Chicken Pasta, which as a use by date of August 30, 2021.
