Marks And Spencer Removes Chicken And Vegetable Soup Over Contamination Fears

Marks And Spencer

Cans of soup have been pulled off the shelves at Marks and Spencer amid fears it has been chemically contaminated.

The multinational giant has removed all its chicken and vegetable soup as a result of the scare.

Bosses have launched an investigation with suppliers to establish the cause of the contamination fears and warned shoppers to return any unopened soup for a full refund, Chronicle Live reports.

A Marks and Spencer spokesman said: “The safety of our food is of paramount importance to Marks & Spencer and we take all issues regarding the production of our food extremely seriously.

“As a precaution, Marks & Spencer has removed Chicken & Vegetable Soup 600g from sale whilst we conduct investigations with our supplier.

“Product with the date code Use by 30/03/17 is the only batch affected.

“No other M&S products are affected.

“We apologise to our customers for any inconvenience caused.”

The Food Standards Agency said the recall has taken as a precautionary measure.

It said: “There is a taint in the product caused by possible chemical contamination.

“Point of sale notices will be displayed in all retail stores that are selling this product.”

Meanwhile two patty products sold at several supermarkets have also been recalled because the words “use by” were missing off the packaging.

The Food Standards Agency said: “Cleone Foods is recalling two of its patty products because they do not contain the wording ‘use by’ with the date code information indicating the date by which the products can be safely consumed on the packaging.

“This product was sold at Tesco, Co-operative, ASDA, Sainsbury’s, Morrison’s, Iceland and Nisa-Retail stores.”

The products affected are 140g packets of Island Delight Jerk Chicken Flaky Patties and Island Delight Lamb Shortcrust patties.

Both have the date "25th March" but included no indication of what it means.
