As households stock up on festive treats and prepare to entertain friends and family over Christmas, Tesco has issued a notice to shoppers recalling a batch of its own-brand shortcakes.
The batch of Chunky Chocolate Shortcakes (175g) with the best before date September 3 2016, has been recalled by the supermarket giant after it realised that the presence of egg is not mentioned in the ingredients list.
Due to the risk to people with allergies or intolerances to egg, Tesco has removed the product from its shelves and placed recall notices in stores where the affected product was sold.
The notice advises customers should not consume the product if they are allergic or intolerant to eggs.
A full refund will be offered to anyone returning the affected product in store, with no receipt required.
