A food recall is issued when there is a discovery made about a certain product that is deemed unsafe for the consumer. The latest warning comes from Morrisons who is warning customers about a popular snack pot item.
“We don’t need a receipt.”
The FSA added: “Sometimes there will be a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold.
“Then it might be ‘withdrawn’ (taken off the shelves) or ‘recalled’ (when customers are asked to return the product).
“Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.”
“We are working flat out to manage the situation.
“We are faced with several challenges throughout our supply chain including a shortage of drivers.
“Whilst this demand is great news for the category and wider economy, it does mean we will have to review our activities plans with all our wholesale and retail partners to ensure the best availability possible is maintained.”
All Haribo sweets are said to be affected, including Goldbears and Tangfastics.
Customers have also noticed a lack of bottled water on supermarket shelves in the last week.
Danone Waters, which owns bottled water brands Evian and Volvic said: “We do not have the required amount of trucks and drivers to cover customer demand, this is due to a national shortage.
“As a result of this, we have had to cancel or rebook many orders for delivery this week and next week. Apologies for the reduced service and availability impacts.”
