What should I do if I’m affected?
Check the products you have in your fridge or freezer and, if the product matches one of those listed above, you should be eligible for a refund.
Jus-Rol has asked customers to check and dispose of the affected products and call the company directly for a refund. The number to call is 0800 125 577, which is open Monday-Friday 9am-6pm.
If you have bought any of the products covered by the BakeAway recall, return them to the store from which they were bought, for a full refund. You don’t need to take your receipt.
Symptoms of food poisoning, which can be caused by salmonella, include feeling sick, diarrhoea, stomach cramps, a high temperature and sometimes vomiting.
If you do experience symptoms of food poisoning, the NHS website says you should drink lots of fluids, such as water or squash, to avoid dehydration.
What are my rights if there’s a food recall?
If you’ve bought a product that’s been recalled, you have the right to a refund through the Consumer Rights Act. The retailer that sold you the product should offer a full refund, even if it’s been in your store cupboard or freezer for several months.
Even if you’ve already consumed or thrown away the product, you can still get a refund if you’re able to show proof of purchase, such as a receipt, bank statement or online order confirmation.
