The supermarket giants have issued a recall for their maple flavour pork belly slices.
The slice may contain undeclared wheat (gluten) and soya, making them a risk to people with certain allergies.
The packs impacted have a use by date of October 29 and are 400g.

It added: “Asda is recalling Asda Maple Flavour Pork Belly Slices because it contains wheat (gluten) and soya which are not mentioned on the label.
“This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to wheat or gluten and/or an allergy to soya.”
Point of sale notices will be displayed in all Asda stores that are selling the product.
It will explain to customers why the product is being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the product.
Sometimes there will be a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold.
Then it might be ‘withdrawn’ (taken off the shelves) or ‘recalled’ (when customers are asked to return the product).
Sometimes foods must be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.
