Food recalls are put in place when a product is deemed to be unsafe for the consumer. The latest recall is an update from the Food Standards Agency (FSA) on popular chicken sold in various different supermarkets.

SFC have recalled a number of batches of their popular chicken products sold in Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and Lidl.

The manufacturers of the chicken have now extended the recall for the third time along with some advice to consumers on how to reduce the risk of food poisoning.

It comes after batches were found to contain salmonella.

Salmonella can cause symptoms including sickness, stomach cramps as well as a fever.

The FSA said: “SFC are recalling SFC Chicken Poppets and Take-Home Boneless Bucket because Salmonella has ben found in the products.

“Batch codes started with an L are displayed on the inner packaging inside the box.

“This update extends the recall of SFC Chicken Poppets to include all batch codes for the products with the best before dates of September 24 and October 31, 2021.”

Customers who have bought any of the following should return the chicken to store.
