Aldi, Sainsbury’s, Pret and M&S pull chicken sandwiches and food from sale over salmonella fears

ALDI, Sainsbury’s, Pret, Marks & Spencer and Waitrose have pulled chicken sandwiches and other products from the shelves due to salmonella fears.

The chains have scrapped a range of ready-to-eat foods including sandwiches, wraps and salads over food poisoning risks.

Sainsbury’s has pulled more than 30 chicken products from stores, as they may contain salmonella.

The supermarket said the recall, which includes a chicken and bacon sub roll and BBQ wings, is a “precautionary measure”.

M&S has also urged customers to return products containing cooked chicken, listing 12 items that shoppers can get a full refund for.

Waitrose shoppers have been warned not to eat 10 chicken products.

Meanwhile, the Food Standards Agency has issued an urgent recall notice for two Aldi products.

That includes the Eat + Go chicken and bacon Caesar wrap, and the triple version.

Shoppers have been warned not to eat the products and can return them to the store for a full refund.

Only items with certain best before dates are affected – you can find a full list of products that have been recalled below but contact your supermarket if you’re not sure.

Meanwhile, Pret said a potential food safety risk at one of its suppliers means it has pulled chicken items from the menu.

The sandwich chain has removed the ad for its new Sriracha Chicken Salad Wrap from its website.

Other customer favorites such as the Chicken Caesar baguette also don’t appear online, with a note instead saying: “Oops, this product is currently not in our shops.”

A Pret A Manger spokesperson said: “As a precautionary measure, we’ve temporarily removed the majority of chicken items on our menu due to a potential food safety risk at one of our suppliers.

“We hope to have these products back in shops soon. We apologize for any inconvenience.”

The affected meat has come from a Cranswick factory in Hull, the producer confirmed in a statement.

It has closed the site for investigations after salmonella was found in a routine inspection.

Cranswick said: “As a precautionary measure, we have asked our customers to remove any of their products containing our ready to eat chicken produced during the affected period.

“We are working closely with the Foods Standards Agency and will collaborate with their experts to resolve the matter.”

The affected products appear to have use by dates of between May 3 and May 20.

It’s not yet clear whether anyone has been ill after eating the contaminated food.

Salmonella causes diarrhoea, vomiting, stomach cramps and a fever, and can lead to hospitalization in severe cases.
