Unilever is recalling products with the selected batch codes
With the UK lockdown ongoing, many are being urged to shield or self-isolate, while the rest of the population are being directed to only go outside for essential reasons such as for food, health reasons, or work (but only if a person cannot work from home).
Earlier this week, Asda revealed a new groceries box.
The package is believed to be the best value food box on the market, and is available for UK delivery.
It contains 31 items for £30, and this includes delivery.
Mike Snell, Managing Director of Asda’s sourcing and procurement arm, IPL, said: “For vulnerable people across the country, staying at home and not being able to make a trip to the supermarket is a difficult prospect.
“At Asda, we’re committed to helping ease the strain on our customers during this time and hope that by offering our food box at an affordable price, we can help to make lives that little bit easier, giving people peace of mind that their cupboards will be well stocked without the stress.”
Asda says the box is brimming with supplies that have been in high demand in recent weeks, including cereal, bread, pasta, tinned fruit and vegetables, sauces, jam, teabags and long-life milk.
It also includes a “selection of treats”.
The supermarket said: “The food box is available to all, but Asda hopes it will help those most vulnerable who are struggling to get to the supermarket, or those who are self-isolating.”
