Tesco has recalled its own brand ice cream cones after “pain relief” tablets were found inside two separate cornets.
The pills were found by customers in the supermarket’s four chocolate and nut ice cream cones. All best before dated boxes up to and including July 2014 are being recalled.
“Tesco has recalled the affected products from consumers on a precautionary basis. Product recall notices will be placed in stores, explaining the reason for recall,” a statement on the Food Standards Agency's website said.
“If you have bought this product, do not eat it,” it added. A spokesman for the supermarket said there have been no reports of any illness.
“We are urgently investigating this incident with our supplier and ask customers to return this product to their local store,” the spokesperson said.
Customers are advised to return packs to a store for a full refund or to contact Tesco customer services on 0800 50 55 55.
No other Tesco products are known to be affected, the FSA said.
