Quorn mince recalled as it 'may contain metal'

The affected Quorn mince packets were sold at Tesco

Quorn has been forced to recall a batch of its frozen mince over fears the packs have been contaminated with small bits of metal.

It is thought that around 12,000 packs are affected, all of which were sold at Tesco.

The 300g packets have a ‘best before’ date of August 31, 2018, and a batch code of 136331.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) advised customers not to eat them and said the product can be returned to where it was purchased, for a full refund.

No other batches or Quorn Foods products are known to be affected.
