Tesco is recalling a batch of its Creamy Leek and Bacon Cooking Sauce because it contains egg which is not mentioned on the label. This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to egg.
The sauce is a 470g jar with a best before date of July 2018. The batch code is 7031 and no other products are known to be affected.
The Food Standards Agency is advising consumers who bought the product and have an allergy or intolerance to egg to not eat it, but instead return it to a Tesco store for a full refund.
Tesco is recalling the above product from customers and will be contacting the relevant allergy support organisations to tell their members about the recall. The company has also displayed a point-of-sale notice in its stores. These notices explain to customers why the product is being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought it.
