Quorn Foods is recalling a batch of its meat-free mince over fears that it may contain small pieces of metal.
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) warns that the 300g packets “may contain small pieces of metal which could represent a safety risk”.
The affected products were only on sale at Tesco, and had a best before date of 31 August 2018 and a batch code of 136331.
Buyers are advised to return any affected packets to their local Tesco store, where they will receive a full refund.
In a statement, Quorn Foods said:
“This immediate recall is a precautionary measure once we became aware that the single batch in question may contain small pieces of metal resulting from an isolated production issue.
“The safety and wellbeing of our customers is our number one priority, which is why we instigated this recall as soon as we became aware of the issue.”
