Some of the UK's biggest supermarkets are recalling products due to incomplete allergy warnings and wrong use-by dates.

Alerts about a number of supermarket and online recalls have been issued by the Food Standards Agency and Trading Standards this month.

Both warn customers not to consume or use recalled goods but rather return them to the store for a full refund.

Waitrose has issued a recall of Chinese 6 Vegetable Spring Rolls because some packs may contain Duck Spring Rolls, which contain sesame and meat which are not mentioned on the label.
