Two major supermarkets have taken steps to recall tins of pasta after it was revealed that the product could contain pieces of rubber.
Both Sainsbury’s and Tesco announced last night that they were recalling the pasta - manufactured by Noliko N.V in Belgium - due to a risk to customer health.
A statement from Tesco said: “We have been made aware that a small number of Tesco Ravioli cans may potentially contain pieces of rubber. We are recalling affected batch codes as a precautionary measure.”
Sainsbury’s advised “customers who have bought these products not to consume them, and to return it to their nearest Sainsbury’s store where they will receive a full refund.”
The beef ravioli and macaroni cheese tins are labelled as own-brand products.
Both firms apologised to customers for any inconvenience caused and stressed that no other products were affected.
The affected products are listed below:
