Sainsbury's recalls its Kids 20 Pork Cocktail Sausages

Sainsbury's has recalled packs of its own-brand Kids 20 Pork Cocktail Sausages because some packs might be labelled with an incorrect 'use by' date of 25 December 2013. This product should have been labelled with a 'use by' date of 25 November 2013. Eating a product after its 'use by' date could pose a possible risk to health. The FSA has issued a Product Recall Information Notice.

If you have bought the product, do not eat it. Instead, return it to the store where you bought it for a full refund.

The product recalled from consumers is:

  • By Sainsbury's Kids 20 Pork Cocktail Sausages
  • Pack size: 180g
  • 'Use by' date: 25 December 2013

Sainsbury's has recalled the product and displayed product recall notices in stores. These notices will tell consumers about the recall and explain the actions they can take if they have bought the product.

No other Sainsbury’s products are known to be affected.

About product recalls and withdrawals

If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). The Food Standards Agency issues Product Withdrawal Information Notices and Product Recall Information Notices to let consumers and local authorities know about problems associated with food. In some cases, a 'Food Alert for Action' is issued. This provides local authorities with details of specific action to be taken on behalf of consumers.

You can get FSA alerts about product recalls and withdrawals either by email or SMS text. Visit the 'Email updates' link at the bottom of this page to find out how.
