What has been said? 

Pret A Manger has removed all chicken from its menus over a "supplier food safety issue". 

Pret and Sainsbury's described the move as a "precautionary measure". 

A message from Pret A Manger's UK Twitter account in a reply to a customer on Wednesday (May 11) said: "Hi, Customer safety's always our priority, so we’ve temporarily removed chicken from our menu as a precautionary measure due to a supplier food safety issue. No Pret products have currently been affected and we're continuing to work with the supplier on the issue."

Sainsbury's wrote on Twitter: "We are recalling the majority of Sainsbury’s and Taste the Difference chicken sandwiches, chicken wraps, chicken sandwich platters and some of our cooked chicken." 

Aldi said: “The products listed above are being recalled due to the possible presence of Salmonella. Customers are asked to return this product to their nearest store, where a full refund will be given.

“We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your co-operation.”

More retailers are recalling products, as Waitrose said: “Waitrose is recalling the above products as a precautionary measure due to the potential presence of Salmonella, which may cause illness if consumed.

“No other Waitrose products are impacted.” 

The supermarket advised: “Do not consume. Package up item. Return the product to your local Waitrose & Partners branch for a refund.” 

Anyone looking for more advice should contact Waitrose Customer Care 0800 188 881 and option four.

Whereas Marks & Spencer said: “Customer safety is of paramount importance to Marks & Spencer and we take all issues regarding the production of our foods extremely seriously."

Anyone wanting to return items does not need a receipt and if unsure what to do, can call the supermarket's customer service line.
