The recalled items are available at Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons as well as smaller supermarkets including Iceland and Waitrose – here’s a full list of what to check for in your cupboards.
Iceland has recalled its own brand Chip Shop Curry Chicken Breast Toppers and its Southern Fried Chicken Popsters, because salmonella has been found in the products and it is unsafe to eat.
The recall applies to certain packs – shoppers should check their products for the best before date and pack size, and if affected they can return them to the store for a refund or contact Iceland Customer Care line on 0800 328 0800 and select option 2.
