Pain relief tablets in Tesco ice cream

Recalled: Tesco 4 Chocolate & Nut Cones

Supermarket giant Tesco Ireland is recalling all batches of a type of ice cream cone after it was found that pain relief tablets had been discovered in two of them.

The alert was issued by the company last night after it emerged that pain relief tablets had been discovered in two individual cones in its Tesco 4 Chocolate & Nut Ice Cream Cones.

The alert was also posted on the Food Safety Authority of Ireland website which said the pack sizes being recalled were 4 x 110ml. In particular, the recall refers to products with a best before end date up to and including July 2014.

The FSAI said Tesco Ireland has issued in-store notices requesting customers who have bought the affected batches to return them to a Tesco store.

For further information, consumers can contact Tesco Ireland on freephone 1800 248123.

The FSAI said no action is being taken by official agencies.
