Tesco has said it is recalling two ready meals due to fears they could trigger allergic reactions.
The supermarket chain will no longer be stocking certain batches of Hearty Food Company Cottage Pie and Hearty Food Company Sausage and Mash because they contain milk which is not mentioned on the label.
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) ruled this means the products are a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents.
Symptoms of milk intolerance can include diarrhoea, nausea, a bloated stomach, as well as stomach cramps and pains.
The products being recalled are 400g servings of Hearty Food Company Cottage Pie with a use-by date of 24, 27, 28 and 30 April, as well as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 May.
The 400g servings of Hearty Food Company Sausage and Mash being recalled are those with a use-by date of 25, 26, 29 April, as well as 1 and 2 May.
No other Tesco products are known to be affected.
Announcing the recall in a notice, the supermarket said: “We have been made aware by our supplier that due to a manufacturing error certain date codes of the Hearty Food Company chilled Cottage Pie and chilled Sausage and Mash may contain small quantities of milk.
“These products should not contain milk and as such milk will not be declared on the packaging.
“Please do not consume these products if you have an allergy to milk, return the affected product to store where a full refund will be given.
“No receipt is required. Tesco apologises to our customers for any inconvenience caused.”
The FSA said Tesco had contacted relevant allergy support organisations, which will tell their members about the recall.
The supermarket will also be displaying notices in their stores.
