The health risk was sparked after it was discovered that the sauce coating Tesco Takeaway Butter Chicken contained nuts, which were not mentioned on the packaging.
This presents an obvious risk to customers with an allergy to nuts, and has left Tesco no option but to recall two batches of the product to protect the health of customers.
A Tesco statement, posted by the Food Standards Agency and published on the Chartered Trading Standards Institute website read: “If you have bought the affected products and have an allergy or intolerance to cashew nuts, do not eat it. Instead return it to the nearest Tesco store for a refund (no receipt is required).”
