The Food Standards Agency is a part of the UK government making sure food products are safe.

It issues warnings on its website, where you can also report food problems you notice.

In other UK supermarket news, Lidl is set to open 30 new locations across the UK. 

The German supermarket is set to focus on the county of Surrey as it expands, reported local news site Surrey Live. Lidl is keen to open new stores in sites with “easy access” and “strong pedestrian or traffic flow” which are located in “prominent sites in town, district, edge of centre or out of town locations.”

A Lidl spokeswoman told “As part of ongoing national expansion plans, our dedicated property teams are working hard to identify suitable locations across England, Scotland and Wales.

“This is for both new stores where there is demand for a Lidl and existing stores that we would like to remodel for customers, which may require a relocation to do so.

“We would encourage any landowners or agents who may be aware of suitable sites, to get in touch with our property teams to discuss.

The Lidl website states they want to “double their portfolio” and says “more leasehold deals required.”

The site adds: “To continue our phenomenal growth we require further sites across the country.

“These pages highlight locations that particularly interest us. We will, however, consider opportunities in addition to those areas listed.”
