The store is extending a recall, made earlier this month, of Starovice Czech Lager 5.0% because it could contain the gas which is not mentioned on the label.

Lidl warns the product is a possible health risk for anyone with a sensitivity to sulphur dioxide or sulphites.

Lidl is recalling all of its stock of the Starovice lager, which comes in 500ml bottles, according to the Food Standards Agency (FSA.)
