Superstore recalls meat products from Falkirk shelves after salmonella scare

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) states Tesco has been forced to recall one of its meat products as a precaution as it may contain salmonella.

The superstore giant, which has a number of locations in and around the Falkirk area, has now taken its Tesco Hog Roast Style Pork with Apple Sauce off the shelves.

According to the FSA, there is a possibility the “crackling crumb sachet” which comes with the pack may contain traces of the bacteria – which can cause diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps.
