A number of supermarkets in Gedling borough have stopped selling some or all cooked chicken products following a salmonella scare at a major food processing plant.

The huge Cranswick factory in Hull processes around 160 tonnes of poultry a day and the food firm say the salmonella was detected during a ‘routine internal inspection’.

Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Aldi and M&S have all started to pull chicken products from their shelves due to the scare.

The Food Standards Agency are now advising people from across the borough with any affected products not to eat them.

It is not yet known if anyone has been made ill by the bug, which normally kicks in between six hours to six days after infection.

A spokesman for Cranswick said: ‘As a precautionary measure, we have asked our customers to remove any of their products containing our ready to eat chicken produced during the affected period.

‘We are working closely with the Foods Standards Agency and will collaborate with their experts to resolve the matter’,

The factory will remain closed until the investigations are complete.

Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury’s and Aldi have all recalled certain products over fears they may be contaminated.

The majority of products that have been recalled are sandwiches and wraps containing cooked chicken. Customers have been urged not to eat the goods.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has recalled batches of Aldi’s Eat + Go Chicken and Bacon Caesar Wrap, along with the triple version of the same product.

In a notice on its website, Aldi said the products are being recalled ‘due to the possible presence of salmonella’.

‘Customers are asked to return this product to their nearest store, where a full refund will be given.

‘We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your co-operation.’

Marks & Spencer has also issued a ‘precautionary recall’ of several chicken products due to the possibility a small number of them may contain salmonella.

Sainsbury’s has recalled more than 30 products in a similar ‘precautionary measure’ over fears the goods ‘may contain salmonella’.

In a statement on its website, Sainsbury’s said it had ‘taken the precautionary measure of recalling the above products as they may contain salmonella’.

‘We are asking customers who have purchased the above products not to consume them and to return them to their nearest Sainsbury’s store, where they will receive a full refund,’ the statement said.

The products the supermarket has recalled include Sainsbury’s Chicken Fajita Triple Wrap, Sainsbury’s Spring on the Lemon Chicken Sandwich, Sainsbury’s Jerk Chicken Wrap, Sainsbury’s chargrilled chicken slices 160g and Sainsbury’s Piri Piri Chicken Mini Fillets 170g all with a use by date from May 3 to May 20 22.
