UK supermarket chain Tesco has recalled Carmarthenshire Boksburg Blue Counter Cheese - in light of 'production and hygiene' concerns.

The supplier reportedly failed to follow proper procedure, and did not receive approval from the Food Standards Agency (FSA) prior to production.

As a result, Tesco is left in the dark regarding the company's 'production and hygiene procedures'.
