The Food Standards Agency have ordered a recall and warned customers not to consume Quorn's meat-free mince due to safety risks owing to possible metal fragments in the products. The recall only affects products sold at Tesco stores and does not include goods bought before the 27th February 2017. The 300g packets under scrutiny have a best-before date of 31 August 2018 and a batch code of 136331. Quorn Foods said it was a precautionary measure resulting from an "isolated production issue." 

Customers are advised to return the product to Tesco where they will get a full refund.
