Supermarket Tesco has issued a precautionary recall for some of its tinned Beef Ravioli over fears it may contain tiny pieces of rubber.

The Food Standards Authority of Ireland confirmed that Tesco Ireland had issued the recall for batches of its Beef Ravioli in the evening of Tuesday 12 July.

A Tesco spokesperson said: “As a precautionary measure, we are recalling the affected products from customers. Customers who have purchased any of the affected products should return them to store for a full refund.​”

The products were manufactured by Belgium company Noliko NV, according to the UK’s Food Standards Agency. The recall extends only to the UK and the Republic of Ireland, Tesco said.
