Sainsbury's is one of the supermarkets to recall products this week.

Waitrose is recalling its own brand Asian Fusion Rice Noodles while Tesco and Sainsbury’s are recalling 1kg boxes of their own brand bran flakes.

Sainsbury’s is recalling its 1kg box of own-brand Wholegrain Bran Flakes with a best before date of August 2016 due to a production fault which has left some containing small pieces of plastic.

Tesco is doing the same for its 1kg boxes with a best before date of May 2016.

Meanwhile, Waitrose is recalling its Asian Fusion Rice Noodles as they may contain egg and or wheat (gluten) which are not listed in the ingredients.

The recall is for 300g packs with ‘Use by’ date: 6 September (2015)

Items should be returned to the relevant supermarket for a full refund.
