A NUMBER of products in city stores have been recalled due to contamination issues.

Approximately 700,000 eggs have been sent to the UK from potentially contaminated farms in the Netherlands.

Morrisons has withdrawn its potato and egg salad from stores in Droitwich and Malvern. 

The company has also recalled its egg and cress sandwich and sandwich selection from the cafe in its Malvern store.

Asda recalled its baby potato and free range egg salad, food to go ham and cheddar ploughman’s salad bowl, and spinach and free range egg snack pot from its supermarket in Silver Street, Worcester.

Waitrose has recalled its free range egg mayonnaise deli filler - and the reduced fat version - from its store in London Road, Worcester.

An Asda spokesman said: “Following precautionary advice from the Food Standards Agency (FSA), we have withdrawn three fresh salad lines from sale. 

"Customers should be reassured by the FSA’s explanation that this decision is not due to food safety concerns and there is unlikely to be any risk to public health from consuming any of these three products. 

"We take our responsibilities seriously and are working closely with the food industry and the FSA in its continuing investigation."
