Costa, Caffè Nero and Starbucks among those recalling products amid Salmonella fears

Grab and go chicken products are being recalled by a number of supermarkets and coffee shops after salmonella concerns were raised by a producer.

Cranswick Country Foods raised the alert that salmonella has been found in chicken used to manufacture products sold by major retailers, with further lines recalled as a precaution while investigations continue.

Caffé Nero, Costa and Starbucks are among those recalling products alongside major supermarkets. A full list of product recalls can be seen here.

The products recalled include chicken sandwiches, wraps and ready meals with use-by dates between 11 May and 20 May.

Cranswick said a routine internal inspection identified the presence of salmonella at its poultry facility in Hull, confirming the products affected were sold as ingredients for sandwiches and meals through UK retailers and food to go outlets.

It said: "As a precautionary measure, we have asked our customers to remove any of their products containing our ready to eat chicken produced during the affected period. We are working closely with the Foods Standards Agency and will collaborate with their experts to resolve the matter.

"We are conducting a thorough investigation into the possible cause of the contamination and the site will remain closed until the investigations are complete."
