Pret a Manger has removed all chicken products from its menu amid fears of a salmonella outbreak among suppliers — after Aldi recalled its chicken and bacon Caesar wraps.

The chain has yet to confirm or deny that it suffers from salmonella problems with its chicken supply, but there are no chicken products on the menu.

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

Past staples, including the Chicken Caesar baguette, are also not available, with a message that reads “Oops, this product is not currently in our stores.”

Pret’s problems have been linked to Aldi, which has had to recall its chicken and bacon Caesar wraps over fears of salmonella and Sainsbury’s, where customers report being ‘blocked’ from buying chicken.

Anyone with Aldi items in the fridge is advised not to eat them by the Food Standards Agency. Instead, they are asked to return them to the nearest store for a full refund.

The Eat + Go chicken and bacon Caesar wrap and triple wrap are both affected. The contaminated items have use dates of May 11 and May 12.

Meanwhile, Brits took to social media to report that chicken was being removed from Sainsbury’s branches.

One said: ‘Tried to buy cooked chicken from @sainsburys tonight and it’s blocked at the till from being sold – anyone else found any problems?

“Apparently all cooked chicken is blocked for sale, including chicken sandwiches.”

Another wrote: ‘I saw two staff members take loads of chicken products off the shelves tonight, they were ‘destroyed’ – working from a large list.

“I was able to buy a few, but they checked the list first!”
