Over 45 different types of ready meals have been recalled by Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, and Morrisons
The recall comes after the UK’s Food Standards Agency issued a warning about a batch of potatoes, which could potentially contain metal shreds after a piece of machinery broke on the production line.
FSA Chief Operating Officer Jason Feeney said: “The FSA is advising anyone who bought these products not to eat them and return them to the shop where they were purchased.
“The pieces of metal which may be present are potentially harmful, so people should check whether they have bought any of the products.”
Whilst Waitrose and Morrisons were both forced to recall one product each, it has been confirmed by Sainsbury’s that over 40 of their ready meals could potentially be contaminated.
The recalled ready meals include both adult and children’s portions, including the ‘by Sainsbury’s’ range of Kids’ Sausage & Mash and a Kids’ Fish Pie.
If you have bought one of these products, you are advised to return it to your nearest Sainsbury’s store, where you will receive a full refund.

A spokesperson for Sainsbury’s said: “We have been made aware that a very small piece of metal has been discovered in a single pack of our Be Good To Yourself Fish Pie.
“As a precautionary measure and in the interest of customer safety, we are recalling all potato-containing ready meal lines produced by the supplier who makes this product.”
Meanwhile a spokesperson from Waitrose added: “The safety of our products is of paramount important to us and so as a precaution we have withdrawn three date codes and we apologise to our customers for any inconvenience caused.”
