Tesco and Superdrug urgently recall food items which could contain pieces of metal | The Sun

TWO major retailers have recalled a couple of products due to fears they could contain pieces of metal.

The product recalls apply to Tesco's whey protein with flavours of strawberry and chocolate.


Drugstore chain Superdrug has also recalled its Slenderplan tropical smoothie meal replacement shake.

These products have been recalled because they could contain small pieces of metal, making them unsafe to eat.

Customers should not eat them and instead return them to the store where they will be given a full refund.

You don't need to provide a receipt to get your money back.

Tesco also issued a recall on some of its products last month.

The grocer had to recall 80g pack sizes of Happi Free From Oat M!lk bars, which contain milk not mentioned on labels.

The Sun contacted Superdrug and Tesco for comment.

What are my rights to a refund?

If you're returning a recalled product, your rights to get a refund depends on whether the fault makes the product unsafe.

Sometimes the business will repair the product, for example by fitting a new part. But this should be done for you.

If a fault makes a product unsafe to use — and it's difficult to correct the fault — the Consumer Guarantees Act says you might have the right to reject the product and claim a replacement or a refund.
