This isn’t the only food item being recalled by supermarkets at the moment.
Tesco is recalling its own-brand salad cream because it contains milk which is not declared on the packaging.
The retailer explained: “We’re recalling Tesco 50 percent less fat salad cream 450ml with a best before end date of June 2022, as we’ve been made aware it contains milk that is not declared on the packaging.
“If you’ve bought the affected product, do not consume it if you have an allergy or intolerance to milk or follow a vegan diet.
“Instead, return it to a Tesco store where a full refund will be given. No receipt is required.”
In other supermarket news, Tesco recently announced its new partnership with Loop, which will allow customers to buy essential items in completely reusable and durable packaging.
Available as a trial in 10 large Tesco stores in the east of England, customers can return their empty packaging to store when finished so it can be cleaned, refilled and used again.
Ken Murphy, Tesco Group CEO, said: “We are determined to tackle plastic waste and one of the ways we can help is by improving reuse options available to customers.
“Bringing Loop to our stores is a significant milestone in this journey.
“With 88 everyday products available, we’re giving customers a wide range of options and we’ll learn as much as we can from this to inform our future packaging plans.”
