Sturridge also posted four images of the dog - who has his own Instagram account - and uploaded CCTV footage of three hooded men. It is unknown who took the dog or if any reward was in fact paid out by Sturridge, but he seems delighted to have Lucci back.

The products have best-by dates ranging from July 17, 2019, to July 19, 2019. The recalled buns should be discarded or returned to the place of purchase for a full refund.
