What does Tesco say?

Tesco says: 'We have been made aware that certain date codes of Tesco Cottage Pie Baby Food 190g may contain small pieces of blue plastic. Tesco apologises to our customers for any inconvenience caused.'

On occasions when there is a problem with a food product that means it shouldn't be sold, the FSA explains that it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product), as is the case here.
