LIDL is recalling beef and pork mince over fears it contains pieces of plastic.
It comes after the supermarket recalled 1kg packs of pork mince earlier in February for the same reason. Lidl is recalling beef and pork mince over fears it contains pieces of plastic
The latest product recall applies to Birchwood’s combined beef and pork mince, which comes with 23% fat.
The affected packs weigh 750g and have a use by date of March 1, 2021.
The possible presence of plastic makes the mince unsafe to eat.
If you’ve bought the product, Lidl is urging you not to eat it and instead return it to your nearest store for a full refund.
You don’t need to have the receipt to get the money back.
Alternatively, you can email [email protected] with a picture of the affected product and the use by date.
The customer services team will then process your refund via letter.
HOAR has asked Lidl how many packs are being recalled, how much they cost and how the problem was discovered, and we’ll update this article once we hear back.
It said in a statement on the Food Standards Agency (FSA) website: “Lidl GB wishes to apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
Lidl has more than 800 stores across the UK. You can find your nearest one by using its store locator tool.
Earlier this month, Lidl recalled chicken nuggets and chicken pops over salmonella fears.
Meanwhile, chicken sold in B&M and Sainsbury’s has been recalled for the same reason.
Plus, Tesco recently issued a recall on packs of spicy chorizo slices over fears they could be contaminated with listeria.
