Sainsbury’s has announced that it is recalling some of its deli sandwich filler products warning that they might contain Listeria.

Late on Monday evening, the supermarket said that it was calling on customers to return products including some of its Cheese & Onion, Chicken & Sweetcorn, Chicken Tikka, Coronation Chicken, Egg & Bacon, Egg Mayo, Seafood Cocktail and Tuna & Sweetcorn Deli Fillers. Products with use by dates up to and including 4 July 2017 are affected.

​Listeria is a type of bacteria that can cause symptoms similar to those caused by the flu, including high temperature, muscle aches or pain, chills, feeling or being sick and diarrhoea. In rare cases the infection can be more severe and cause serious complications, such as meningitis. It can present particular dangers to pregnant women, including miscarriage, stillbirth or health problems for unborn children.
