    Just making sure we all know there has been lots of recalls on frozen veg, various brands and stores affected. Risk of listeria and according to DD there has been some deaths.

    i'll see if I can find out bit more and get a link with some info.

    Just noticed this is down to 4.66 in W.

    Sure there's someone on here uses it......

    There's a little bit of a saving if it's still in the 342

    Getting impatient for a reply to my email I sent yesterday with the proof the beer I got yesterday was OOD but I guess they are busy...I think Mr TS may have jinxed it as he started to drink it last night before the refund came through.

    Of course important to be careful. But this has been going on a few years according to the beeb/fsa

    According to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) 11 people in the UK have been affected by listeriosis since 2015, including two people who died last year.

    Of course I don't think the minimum price per unit was in when I got my deal for about 70p bottle was it DM?

    Now I have read it gocat, do you think they have done some sort of enquiry and the results have just come to light for the recalls. I don't remember hearing of risks of listeria with frozen veg before today. I do remember washed ready prepared salads etc being an issue and mentioned here before.

    Good Morning Elite
    I have a quick question for the W experts.
    I have some 8 wys 40 W vouchers that came in a mailing. The last time I was there I got a till spit spit for 4 wys 40.
    So my question is, does anyone know if I can use them together and how much the till would need to see to use both vouchers in one transaction. Obviously they have different bar codes. Thank you

    I can't get used to this weather. Day after day of sunshine. We are blessed. It so nice not to have to hunt around for coats and jumpers.

    Today I sat in the blazing sunshine in full view of the Cathedral and had tea and scones. A nice week off work ahead of me
