Earlier this week, we brought you an important soy sauce recall involving Aldi stores, as there was a safety issue with the packaging of their own brand soy sauce products.
The Food Standards Agency has announced that the problem extends further with more stores, and more products affected.
These are all now included in this important soy sauce recall. We have all the information you need here.
Which stores are affected?
Aldi, Asda, Tesco and Waitrose have all issued a recall on their own brand Soy/Soya Sauce due to fears that the bottles may contain small fragments of glass.
This could obviously represent a serious safety risk to consumers.
All the items that are being removed from shelves are imported into the UK by World Wise Foods.
The supplier said a manufacturing error means some bottles may contain small fragments of glass.
Soy sauce is a store cupboard staple, and a popular ingredient in many recipes.
As you probably know, it’s free on the Slimming World plan, and here at Pinch of Nom, we use it in many of our Chinese Fakeaway recipes, such as our Syn Free Diet Coke Chicken and Syn Free Chinese Chicken & Broccoli.
If you use Soy Sauce, it’s worth checking your cupboards to see if you have any of the products involved. The recall notice applies to the following products;
