Lidl and Waitrose both issued new recalls on Friday, cautioning shoppers to be careful. Here is the latest information on these recalls.


The Food Standards Agency said: “Lidl GB is recalling Simply Mature White Cheddar as it may contain pieces of plastic.

“The possible presence of plastic makes this product unsafe to eat.”

The affected batch is 900g, and has a best before date of 26 December 2020.

Advising shoppers on what to do, the FSA continued: “Lidl GB is recalling the above product. Point of sale notices will be displayed in all retail stores that are selling this product.

“These notices explain to customers why the product is being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the product.

“If you have bought the above product do not eat it. Instead, return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.”

Lidl are also offering a refund via letter. They explained on the recall notice: “Alternatively, please dispose of the product and email [email protected] including a photo of the affected product with the Best Before Date.

“The Customer Services team will process this refund via letter.”

The FSA detailed: “Waitrose & Partners is recalling Waitrose No.1 Dominican Republic Milk Chocolate 49 percent because some products contain almonds, hazelnuts (nuts) and soya which are not mentioned on the label.

“Due to a packaging error, some products contain Waitrose No.1 Orange & Almond Chocolate instead.

“This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to almonds, hazelnuts (nuts) and/or soya.”

Batch code 0259 with a best before end of November 2021 is affected.

Advising shoppers what to do, Waitrose said: “Package up item. Return the product to your local Waitrose & Partners branch for a refund.

“Contact: Waitrose Customer Care 0800 188 884, Option 4.”

The supermarket offered their apologies for any inconvenience caused as a result of the recall.

These are not the only recalls issued this week.

Those who have been shopping in stores have been urged to check their cupboards.

The discount retailer has warned customers about Cologran Sucralose sweetener tablets.

Some batches of the product could contain aspartame (E951) which is not listed on the label.
