After Pret and Aldi pulled items, Waitrose is recalling sandwiches “due to a potential Salmonella risk.”

Waitrose is now recalling some of its chicken sandwich range due to a potential salmonella risk, after Pret A Manger removed all the chicken items on its menu, Aldi recalled its chicken and bacon Caesar wraps and Sainsburys took action on its cooked chicken offering.

The supermarket has taken the decision as a ‘precautionary measure’ and urged customers not to eat the sandwiches and wraps.

It is thought to be due to an issue from a supplier.

‘We’re recalling 10 of our Waitrose chicken sandwich and wrap lines — with Use By dates up to and including 14 May — due to a potential Salmonella risk,’ a spokesperson told MailOnline.

‘Customers should not consume these items and should return them to us for a full refund. We are very sorry for the inconvenience.’

The spokesperson did not specify which exact wraps and sandwich flavours are recalled.

A Sainsbury’s spokesperson said in a Tweet: ‘We are recalling the majority of Sainsbury’s and Taste the Difference chicken sandwiches, chicken wraps, chicken sandwich platters and some of our cooked chicken.’

It was described as a precautionary measure, with the supermarket chain adding: ‘Our supplier has alerted us that salmonella has been detected in some batches of cooked chicken.’

Pret also took the ‘precautionary measure’ to removed the chicken items ‘due to a potential food safety risk at a supplier’.

The chain previously advertised a Sriracha Chicken Salad Wrap for its new menu but the item does not currently appear on its website.

Previous staples including the Chicken Caesar baguette are also not available, with a notice saying ‘Oops, this product is currently not in our shops’.

A Pret A Manger spokesperson told MailOnline: ‘As a precautionary measure, we’ve temporarily removed the majority of chicken items on our menu due to a potential food safety risk at one of our suppliers.
