Full list of food items recalled from Tesco and Sainsbury’s over health risks

Tesco and Sainsbury’s have withdrawn a range of products from their shelves this month, including cheese and frozen desserts.

Food recall alerts by the UK Food Standards Agency state that the items contain ingredients that are not listed on the packaging.

The supermarket products are now considered a “possible health risk” to consumers who are allergic to the undeclared components.

Fears of salmonella in Sainsbury’s Mexican-style cheese are joined by allergy recalls for various foods sold in Tesco.

Here’s the full list of products recalled in May 2023.


Tesco has recalled specific batches of Gosh! Sweet Potato Pakora and frozen itsu chocolate bao buns due to the presence of undeclared allergens.

According to the Food Standards Agency, the products “may contain gluten which is not declared on the label”. This means that the products are a possible health risk for anyone with coeliac disease, and/or an allergy or intolerance to gluten.
