Tesco has recalled its beef ravioli from Irish stores over fears it contains rubber.

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) said the 400g pack of Tesco beef with an expiry date of December 2018 has been recalled due to potential traces of rubber.

The FSAI said Tesco Ireland is asking any customers who bought the recalled food to return it to the store.

Similarly Tesco in the UK and Sainburys were also recalling the food as a “precautionary measure”.

A statement on the UK’s Food Standards Agency’s website said: “As a precautionary measure Sainsbury’s and Tesco are recalling the affected products and point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in stores where the products are sold.”

The agency added: “If you have bought any of the above products, do not eat it. Instead, contact the store from where it was bought for a full refund.”

In June Tesco had to recall guacamole over concerns that salmonella may be present.
