Tesco recalls various own-brand ambient meals
Tesco is recalling various own-brand ambient meals, because a production fault means the rice in some packs could become mouldy during storage. If you have bought one of the products, do not eat it. The Agency has issued a Product Recall Information Notice.
All 350g packs of the following products are being recalled from customers:
- Tesco Indian Chicken Jalfrezi
- Tesco Szechuan Chicken
- Tesco Chilli Con Carne
- Tesco Chicken Tikka Masala
- Tesco Beef in Black Bean Sauce
- Tesco Sweet & Sour Chicken
- Tesco Indian Chicken Korma
- Tesco Balti Vegetable Curry
- ‘Best before’ dates: all date codes are being recalled
Tesco is recalling all date codes of the products listed above. Product recall notices have been displayed in stores to tell people about the recall.
If you have bought one of the products listed above, do not eat it. Instead, return it to the store it was bought from for a full refund or contact Tesco customer services on 0800 505 555.
About product recalls and withdrawal
If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product).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 Food Standards Agency 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.
You can get FSA alerts about product recalls and withdrawals either by email or SMS text. Visit the 'Email updates' link at the bottom of this page to find out how.
