Quorn Meat Free Mince Recalled Due to Worries it Contains Metal Pieces
News Mar 02, 2017 | Written by Louise Saul
Quorn Foods has recalled a batch of its frozen Meat Free Mince due to worries that is may contain small pieces of metal. The batch affected is their 300g frozen Quorn Mince bags, with batch code 136331. The affected product was only on sale at Tesco stores from 27 February 2017 to 1 March 2017, and no other batches in other stores, or other Quorn Foods products, are thought to be affected.
The Advice by the Food Standards Agency is: “We are aware other retailers are selling this product with the same batch code and date code, however, Quorn Food Ltd has confirmed they are not affected. If you have bought the above product do not eat it. Instead, return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.”
As a point of action, Quorn Foods have recalled the product from Tesco stores and a point-of-sale-notice will be displayed at Tesco stores. This notice explains why the product is being recalled and advises consumers what to do if they have bought it.
