Shoppers who have purchased the food should not eat it

A food recall has been issued for pains au chocolat sold in supermarkets.

The product is sold in Sainsbury's, Asda and Morrisons.

St Pierre recalled its Pains Au Chocolat because of the possible presence of mould.

Shoppers should look out for the 6 pack with the best before dates of September 17, 2023, September 25, 2023 and October 1, 2023.

Anyone who has bought the pack should not eat it as the product has been classed as "unsafe to eat" by the Food Standards Agency.

The products are suitable for freezing so shoppers should check any packs they may have put in the freezer.

A statement from St Pierre said: "If you have purchased St Pierre 6 Pains Au Chocolat with a Best Before date of 17/09/23, 25/09/23 or 01/10/23, please take it back to your nearest store where you will be given a full refund.

"You do not need your receipt. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

"If you would like any further information please contact:"

Sainsbury's added: "No other St Pierre products are affected by this issue.

"We are sorry about this and apologise for any inconvenience caused and would like to thank you in advance for your understanding and co-operation.

"Food recalls can be issued when an item is found to be unsafe for consumption.

Products are often recalled and withdrawn from shelves.

Asda and Morrisons both have product recalls live due to safety concerns.

Asda has recalled the Shark Rashvest as it was found to be non-compliant with safety standards.

Morrisons has recalled the ZURU Robotic Baby Shark Sing and Swim Bath Toy (with a plastic top fin) has been recalled due to a possible safety issue.
