Tesco was forced to recall its Oriental Kitchen Chicken Chow Mein due to undeclared egg, milk and mustard, while Lindt & Sprüngli recalled two Easter chocolate eggs due to undeclared barley.

Also featured in this gallery are recalls by Seasalt Cornwall, Kenrow Chocolate and Best Fresh.

Consumers who have bought these products were advised not to eat them and instead return them to the store they bought them from – or their nearest store – for a refund.
