Waitrose is currently recalling its plant-based burgers.

The Waitrose Plantlife Pulled Oyster Mushroom Burgers are being recalled due to some packs containing small pieces of blue plastic.

The supermarket issued the recall onto its website.

Waitrose said: “Do not consume, package up the item, return the product to your local Waitrose & Partners branch for a refund.

“Contact: Waitrose Customer Care 0800 188 881, Option Four. We apologise that it has been necessary to recall this product and for the inconvenience caused.”

All batch codes and all use by dates are affected in the recall.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) added: “The product may contain small pieces of blue plastic which makes the product unsafe to eat.”

Tesco and Sainsbury’s

Last month, supermarkets including Tesco and Sainsbury’s recalled sausages due to incorrect packaging.

The Traditional Welsh Sausage Company, which is sold in various retailers, is recalling four date codes of their Edwards of Conwy Six Traditional Pork Sausages.

This is because they may contain gluten which is not declared on the packaging.

This makes it unsafe for anyone who has an allergy or intolerance to gluten.

Although the use by dates have now passed, customers should also check their freezers too.

Use by dates:

– September 11, 2021

– September 12, 2021

– September 21, 2021

– September 25, 2021

Tesco said “do not eat” the product if you have an allergy or intolerance to gluten and customers should instead return it to a Tesco store where a full refund will be given.

No receipt is required when returning the sausages.
