Aldi, Tesco, Asda, Morrisons and Waitrose all launched product recalls this week, with some items containing bits of metal and others raising allergy fears.
Supermarkets including Aldi, Tesco, Asda, Morrisons and Waitrose have issued a series of important recalls that shoppers should be aware of.
If you have purchased any of the items below you must return it for a refund immediately – as the product may be unsafe to consume or use.
In most cases, you do not need your receipt to get your money back for recalled products for a supermarket branded product.
For branded items, the manufacturer will usually lead the recall, so you’ll need to check with them who is issuing the refund.
Again, you may simply return it to the store where you purchased it.
For any product recalls, you can check the Food Standards Agency and Trading Standards websites.
Aldi – Moser Roth The Collection Milk, white and dark chocolates
Aldi is removing some packets from its box of Moser Roth The Collection milk, white and dark chocolates because they contain eggs that are not mentioned on the label.
This means that the product poses a health concern for someone allergic to eggs.
All lot codes are included in the recall and the box of chocolates bears product number 16105.
Tesco, Asda, Morrisons and Boots – Nuby Kids Mugs
Asda, Boots, Morrisons and Tesco are recalling Nuby Incredible Gulp and Super Quench cups over concerns they pose a choking hazard.
Mugs purchased between November 1, 2021 and January 14, 2022, with lot codes WF10V and WG08V are being recalled by Nuby.
The same issue affects mugs purchased directly from the Nuby UK website.
Nuby said the mouth section of the cups spout could come off if the straw or spout were damaged.
Waitrose – Prosciutto Cappelletti and Tortelloni with Cheese and Smoked Ham
Waitrose is withdrawing its own brand Prosciutto Cappelletti and Essentials Cheese and Smoked Ham Tortelloni due to undeclared pistachios.
This means that the products pose a potential health risk to anyone with a nut allergy.
The recalled Waitrose Prosciutto Cappelletti comes in a 310g pack, with use-by dates of February 20 and February 21, 2022 included in the warning.
Waitrose Essentials Cheese and Smoked Ham Tortelloni You Shouldn’t Eat If You Have A Nut Allergy is available in a 300g size and has a use-by date of 21 February 2022.

The recalled packs are the Frubes Strawberry, Red Berry and Peach Variety Pack 9x37g.
They have an expiration date of February 9, 2022 and a batch code of 9218195.
Only products with a “C” after the expiration date are affected, displayed as “09 Feb C” on the packaging.
No other Yoplait or Frubes products are affected by the recall.
