Food products have been recalled by Tesco, Morrisons, Waitrose and Holland & Barrett over health and allergy concerns.

The Food Standards Agency has issued alerts on a variety of items, including pasta, seeds, biscuits and pizza ingredients.

The watchdog will issue recall notices when a product is unsafe for customers to consume or could cause harm to someone with allergies.

LancsLive reports that the FSA said some of the latest products may contain nuts and seeds which were not declared on the label.

Others may have been contaminated with salmonella, which can cause fever, diarrhoea and abdominal cramps.

Anyone who has bought one of the items listed below should not use or consume them. Instead, return them to the appropriate supermarket on their next visit.

Usually, a receipt of purchase for a product which has been recalled is not needed for a refund.

Here are the full details of each product:

Pasta

Waitrose is recalling Waitrose Prosciutto Cappelletti and Waitrose Essentials Cheese and Smoked Ham Tortelloni because of undeclared pistachio (nuts).

This means the products are a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to pistachio (nuts).

The product details are:
