Sainsbury's issues a recall for chicken breasts

21 January 2016

Sainsbury’s has issued a recall for chicken breasts that contain ingredients not listed on the label. 

Packages labelled as Just Cook chicken breasts with piri piri sauce in fact contained chicken and bacon lattice. 

“This means the product contains milk and wheat, which is not mentioned on the product label,” the Food Standards Agency said in a release. 

“The product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents and/or an allergy to wheat or intolerance to gluten.”

The affected chicken (326g) has a use by date of January 24.

It is the second recall that Sainsbury’s have issued this week, after metal fragments were found in its own-brand wholemeal bread.
