Advice for customers

Morrisons customers who have bought the above products are urged not to eat them and instead return them to the store where they purchased them for a full refund.

The supermarket said: “Please do not eat this product and return it to your nearest store for a full refund. We don’t need a receipt.

“No other products are affected by this issue. We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause and assure customers of our continuing commitment to the highest standard of product quality and safety.”

The FSA issues alerts if there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, such as contamination, incorrect labelling, or an allergy risk. Products will then be pulled from the shelves or recalled in some cases.

Customers must then return the product to the point of purchase to get their money back.
