Tesco’s customer notice read: “We have been made aware that specific batches of various Tesco chilled products may have been contaminated with small pieces of blue plastic and metal. This could potentially pose a risk if consumed.”
Tesco continued: “Please do not consume these products and return them to store where a full refund will be given. No receipt is required.”
The supermarket apologised for any inconvenience caused to customers and urged them to contact Customer Services on 0800505555 for further information.
The FSA reiterated this: “If you have bought any of the above products do not eat them. Instead, return them to the store from where they were bought for a full refund. No receipt is required.
“For further details, please contact Tesco Customer Services directly on 0800 505 555. Please see the attached notice.”
Food recalls do not happen regularly but must be taken seriously when they do. The FSA explained: “If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be ‘withdrawn’ (taken off the shelves) or ‘recalled’ (when customers are asked to return the product).
“The FSA issues Product Withdrawal Information Notices and Product Recall Information Notices to let consumers and local authorities know about problems associated with food.
“In some cases, a ‘Food Alert for Action’ is issued. This provides local authorities with details of specific action to be taken on behalf of consumers.”
