Tesco shoppers have been issued a “do not eat” warning over a product which may contain pieces of glass.

The supermarket giant is recalling one of its sandwich products due to the possible presence of “small pieces of glass”.

Tesco has recalled its Tesco Sandwich Pickle because of the risk, which makes the product unsafe to eat.

The affected Sandwich Pickle comes in a 295g jar, has a batch code of 3254 and a best before date of September 11, 2025.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has warned any customers who have already purchased the pickle not to eat it.

A spokesman said: “Tesco is recalling the above product. The company has issued a recall notice to its customers.

“These notices explain to customers why the product is being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the product.

“If you have bought the above product do not eat it. Instead, return it to any Tesco store for a full refund. For more information contact Tesco Customer Services on 0800 505 555.”

A Tesco spokesman added: “Please do not consume this product and instead return any affected product to the store where a full refund will be given. No receipt is required.

Tesco apologises to our customers for any inconvenience caused.

“If you require further details please contact customer services directly.”

What is a product recall?

If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product).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 FSA 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 actions to be taken on behalf of consumers.
