Food recall: Tesco issues warning on Christmas food amid serious health risk – full list

A food recall has been issued for items sold by Tesco stores. The items may contain undeclared sulphur dioxide and Listeria monocytogenes which can cause a health risk.

A statement from Tesco said: “We’ve been made aware by our supplier that some packs of Tesco Finest Festive Fruit & Nut Selection have been packed in Tesco Finest Festive Belgian Dark Chocolate Brazil Nuts packaging.

“This means that sulphur dioxide is not mentioned on the label, so the mispackaged product is a possible risk to customers with a sensitivity to sulphur dioxide or sulphites.

“The correctly packed product is not affected.”

The packs affected have the batch code L0075004 with a best before date of May 2021.


Anyone who has bought the affected product has been urged not to eat it.

Instead, it can be returned to the store where it was bought for a full refund.

Customers do not need a receipt to return the product.

Tesco added: “We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Again, the product can be returned to the store where it was bought for a full refund.

A Tesco statement explained: “Don’t consume the affected product. Instead, please return it to a Tesco store where a full refund will be given. No receipt is required.”

When a problem is spotted with an item, it can be recalled or withdrawn from shelves.

Food recalls are not often issued but should be taken seriously by consumers.

Anyone who has recently shopped in Tesco should check for the affected items.
