Aldi, Waitrose and Schweppes are all urgently recalling products; The list includes a food pouch for babies.

Byline: Will Hayward

Products are being urgently recalled over safety fears by retailers including major supermarkets.

Customers are being warned about the items so it's important to check whether you have any in the cupboards or in your home.

Some could contain the harmful bacteria listeria, some have faulty packaging and others contain "spoilage organisms".

Here's the full list - as well as older recalls that are still in place:

Reason - presence of listeria bacteria

Batch - use by date July 20/21/22

Symptoms caused by this organism can be similar to flu and include high temperature, muscle ache or pain, chills, feeling or being sick and diarrhoea. However, in rare cases, the infection can be more severe, causing serious complications, such as meningitis.

Some people are more vulnerable to listeria infections, including those over 65 years of age, pregnant women and their unborn babies, babies less than one month old and people with weakened immune systems.

Reason - presence of listeria bacteria

Batch - Pack size E1kg and all batch codes. Best before August 2018, October 2019 and November 2019

Reason - presence of listeria bacteria

Batch - Products with barcode 25466638 only and all best before up to Jan 2020

Reason - Product may contain "uncharacterised spoilage organisms" (such as mould, enterobacteriaceae or pseudomonas) at unknown levels which may make this product unsafe to eat.

Batch - Pack size 130g with codes - 02.06.2019-1, 02.06.2019-2, 02.06.2019-3.
