Asda has several foods recalled at the moment including crisps, children’s ready meals as well as baby milk formula. The latest recall from the supermarket affects a popular chicken product.

A food recall is issued when there is a discovery made deemed unsafe for the consumer. 

The statement was released by the supermarket as well as on the Food Standards Agency (FSA) website.

The supermarket is recalling a single batch code of its 2 Original Chicken Chargrills 170g.

Asda said this is due to the possible presence of salmonella.

This makes it unsafe for any customer to consume and the retailer is warning customers not to.

Symptoms of salmonella include a fever as well as abdominal cramps.

Asda said: “No other date codes or Asda brand products are known to be affected.

“If you have purchased Asda 2 Original Chicken Chargrills 170g with a best before date of September 5, 2022, please do not consume the product.

“Please return it to your nearest store where you will be given a full refund. You do not need your receipt.”

The affected batch code that customers should look for is 31120953.

Customers who would like any further information should call Asda Customer Relations on 0800 952 0101.

This isn’t the only food recall in place from the grocer.

Little Dish is recalling its British Chicken and Veg Pie, 200g.

This is because it may incorrectly contain fish pie with undeclared fish.

The batch date affected has a best before date of April 18, 2021. 

The presence of the fish means that it posed a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to fish. 

This specific food item is sold in Asda as well as other supermarkets like Morrisons.

PepsiCo is also recalling its Smith’s Snaps Spicy Tomato 8x13g multipack bags of crisps. 

This is because some of the batches may be under-cooked and the crisp is noticeably harder than usual.

This means the product may present a choking hazard and is therefore unsafe to eat.

Customers should look for the faulty batch if they have recently bought the crisps.

Smith’s Snaps Spicy Tomato Flavour

Pack size: 8x13g multipack bag
