Morrisons issues urgent recall on popular food item over allergy fears – ‘do not eat’

A food recall is issued when there is a discovery made about a certain product that is deemed unsafe for the consumer. The latest warning comes from Morrisons who is warning customers about a popular snack pot item.

“We don’t need a receipt.”

The FSA added: “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“Then it might be ‘withdrawn’ (taken off the shelves) or ‘recalled’ (when customers are asked to return the product).

“Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.”

“We are working flat out to manage the situation.

“We are faced with several challenges throughout our supply chain including a shortage of drivers.

“Whilst this demand is great news for the category and wider economy, it does mean we will have to review our activities plans with all our wholesale and retail partners to ensure the best availability possible is maintained.”

All Haribo sweets are said to be affected, including Goldbears and Tangfastics.

Customers have also noticed a lack of bottled water on supermarket shelves in the last week.

Danone Waters, which owns bottled water brands Evian and Volvic said: “We do not have the required amount of trucks and drivers to cover customer demand, this is due to a national shortage.

“As a result of this, we have had to cancel or rebook many orders for delivery this week and next week. Apologies for the reduced service and availability impacts.”

How to live longer: The single most important dietary item for longevity – major study

A comprehensive study called Food Habits in Later Life, conducted under guidance of the Union of Nutritional Sciences and the World Health Organization, found a consistent association between legume consumption and longer life expectancy.

The study examined the nutritional and health problems of an elderly cohort from 13 communities in six countries.

It examined individual food groups — vegetables, legumes, fruits and nuts, cereals, dairy, meat, fish, alcohol, and monounsaturated/saturated fat ratios – as predictors of mortality among people aged 70 and over.

Health-related data were obtained from a total of 2,013 individuals who participated in this cross-cultural, multi-centre study.

How to get rid of visceral fat: The 80p dietary item proven to reduce belly fat

Visceral fat neighbours vital organs in the body, such as the liver and intestines. It forms one part of metabolic syndrome – a cluster of conditions that increase your risk of heart disease. The harmful belly fat can also hamper insulin production – a precursor to type 2 diabetes.

Acetic acid (AcOH), a main component of vinegar, has been found to suppress body fat accumulation in animal studies.

This finding prompted researchers to investigate the effects of vinegar intake on the reduction of body fat mass in obese Japanese in a double-blind trial.

The subjects were randomly assigned to three groups of similar body weight, body mass index (BMI), and waist circumference.

BMI is a measure of whether you’re a healthy weight for your height.

During the 12-week treatment period, the subjects in each group ingested 500 ml daily of a beverage containing either 15 ml of vinegar, 30 ml of vinegar or 0 ml of vinegar.

Body weight, BMI, visceral fat area, waist circumference, and serum triglyceride levels were significantly lower in both vinegar intake groups than in the placebo group.

“In conclusion, daily intake of vinegar might be useful in the prevention of metabolic syndrome by reducing obesity,” wrote the researchers.

General dietary tips to reduce visceral fat

According to Bupa, if you want to reduce your belly fat, you’ll need to burn more calories (energy) than you consume, and eat the right kinds of food.

The health body recommends the following:

  • Make sure you eat a balanced diet. Try to eat at least five portions of fruit and veg each day, and include higher-fibre starchy foods in meals
  • Have some reduced-fat dairy or soya drinks fortified in calcium
  • Eat more beans, pulses, fish and eggs
  • Eat small amounts of unsaturated oil
  • Drink six to eight glasses of water each day
  • Avoid adding salt or sugar to your meals.

“And finally, cut out sports drinks, sugar sweetened drinks and other foods that have a lot of added sugar in them,” it advises.

“Be aware that low-fat options might have high amounts of added sugar in them.”

In addition to eating well, you should engage in regular physical exercise.

“Also create opportunities to add motion to routine tasks,” advises Harvard Health.

“For example, park farther from your destination and walk the rest of the way, take the stairs instead of the elevator, and stand while you talk on the phone.”

What’s more, evidence suggests increasing sleep may reduce visceral fat.

A six-year study including 293 people found that increasing sleep from six hours or less to seven to eight hours reduced visceral fat gain by roughly 26  percent.

You Can Use This Common Kitchen Item To Clean Your Grill

You may be surprised to hear that aluminum foil can be used instead of a brush for cleaning. Truth is, it’s an easy and convenient way to keep your grill in good condition. In order to clean with foil, you’ll want to make a ball that is big enough so it can be held between a pair of tongs, according to CNET. Then, you can scrub the grill plates while they are still hot or warm to get rid of any food particles and grime as stated in an article in CNET. 

It’s important to know — when you clean with aluminum foil — tiny pieces of foil can get stuck to the metal grill plates. But don’t worry, there’s another trick. Once you’re done cleaning and the grill has cooled, it’s recommended that you wipe it down with a wet cloth to ensure there aren’t any unwanted particles on the grill. Now you have a new handy method to clean your grill when you don’t have a brush or don’t feel like spending money on a new one.

Current government guidelines state that outdoor gatherings- including in gardens- are allowed with up to six people from two households. 

Hospitality venues are also open for outdoor service, such as beer gardens or terraces. People can purchase food and alcohol and there will be no 10pm curfew this time.

People still need to stay two metres away from anyone they do not live with and those outside of a support bubble.

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall: Surprising fitness item royal takes abroad when travelling

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall has, unsurprisingly, fine-tuned how she likes to travel. The royal has been on a great many visits alongside her husband Prince Charles. There’s one item she says she always takes when jet-setting.
“The Duchess is touring a community centre where she turns her hand to art, flower-arranging and cooking, and drops in on a yoga class for senior citizens,” wrote Hardman.

“They all obediently freeze in position as she walks in.

“She spots a ‘back brick’ and tells her guide that she never travels without one.

“‘Healthy ageing – that’s what we all need,’ she says cheerfully.”


Yoga bricks are a helpful tool to deepen flexibility and enhance yoga practice by lending the support needed.

Camilla is known to be a fan of yoga and practices the discipline alongside pilates.

While watching the Singapore class she also remarked: “It’s very good for you yoga, isn’t it?

“I do a bit of yoga. A bit of yoga and a bit of Pilates.”

He has previously claimed if more people enjoyed the physical and mental benefits of the discipline the NHS could save on ‘precious and expensive’ resources.

Not everything the royals take away with them focuses on fitness, though.

Telegraph reporter Gordon Rayner, who has attended 20 royal tours, previously reported the pair travel with their own alcohol.

Charles and Camilla sometimes take a secret stash of booze with them when they travel to avoid their drinks being tampered with.

“Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall sometimes take their own alcohol so there’s no danger of their drinks being spiked,” Rayner told Conde Nast Traveler.
