All ‘best before’ end dates up to and including October 2012.
The affected products have been recalled from customers. All stores in receipt of these products have been told about the recall and point-of-sale notices will be displayed in stores explaining why the products have been recalled. If you have bought any of the above products, do not eat them. To get a full refund, return the affected product to the store. No receipt is required.

About product withdrawals and recalls
If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product).
The Food Standards Agency issues Product Withdrawal Information Notices and Product Recall Information Notices to let consumers and local authorities know about problems associated with food. In some cases, a ‘Food Alert for Action’ is issued. This provides local authorities with details of specific action to be taken on behalf of consumers.
You can get FSA alerts about product recall and withdrawals either by email or SMS text. Visit the Get Alerts page at the link towards the bottom of this page to find out how.
