A food recall is issued when there is a discovery made about a product or food item that is deemed unsafe for the customer. The latest recall is from Asda and Morrisons.
Little Dish is recalling its British Chicken and Veg Pie, 200g.
This is because it may incorrectly contain fish pie with undeclared fish.
The batch date affected has a best before date of April 18, 2021.
The presence of the fish means that it posed a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to fish.

Asda and Morrisons are warning customers to “not eat” the product.
Instead, those who have bought the food item should return it to their nearest store where they will be given a full refund.
The company behind the children’s ready meal said: “Check the use by date of the product which can be found on the top right hand corner of the product sleeve.
“Affected product has already been removed from shelves.”

No other food item by the brand is affected by the food recall.
There are also a number of other food recalls in place by Asda.
PepsiCo is recalling its Smith’s Snaps Spicy Tomato 8x13g multipack bags of crisps.
This is because some of the batches may be under-cooked and the crisp is noticeably harder than usual.
This means the product may present a choking hazard and is therefore unsafe to eat.
Customers should look for the faulty batch if they have recently bought the crisps.

Merchant Gourmet is also recalling one of its microwavable quinoa food products.
Packs of Merchant Gourmet Red and White Quinoa are sold in stores including Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and Ocado.
It is being recalled due to undeclared barley and what that is not listed on the label.
This could cause a potential risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to gluten.
