SUPERMARKET giant Tesco has issued a recall of its own brand ice cream cones after customers found “pain relief” tablets in two individual cornets.
Tesco said it is investigating the incident with its supplier after the tablets were found in two of its own brand chocolate and nut ice cream cones by two separate customers.
A spokesman for the supermarket said there have been no reports of any illness.
The Food Standards Agency said Tesco had issued a recall notice on all Tesco 4 x 110ml packs of chocolate and nut ice cream cones following the two incidents.
A statement on the FSA’s website said: “Tesco has undertaken a precautionary recall of this product as two individual Tesco chocolate and nut ice cream cones have been found to contain a tablet (for pain relief). “
It said the supermarket had recalled all date codes of the product and would be displaying recall notices in stores.
Customers have been warned not to eat the product and are advised to return the pack to the store for a full refund or to contact Tesco customer services on 0800 50 55 55.
A Tesco spokesman said they were alerted to the issue by two customers in two separate incidents but would give no further details.
The spokesman said: “We are urgently investigating this incident with our supplier and ask customers to return this product to their local store.”
