Popular chicken products which were sold in Tesco, Sainsbury's and B&M have been urgently recalled amid salmonella poisoning concerns.
The popular frozen meals can be found in many supermarkets including Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and Tesco. As a result, Salfordians are being urged to check their freezers to ensure none of the effected meals are contained within.
