Tesco has issued an urgent recall on one of its most popular lunchtime products over fears it may contain ‘pieces of glass’.

The supermarket giant has told customers not to eat its own-brand sandwich pickle spread because ‘possible presence of glass makes it unsafe to eat’.

A recall notice has been issued for 295g jars of Tesco Sandwich Pickle with batch code 3254 and a best-before date of September 11, 2025.

A Tesco spokesperson said: ‘We are aware a specific date/batch code of Tesco Sandwich Pickle 295g jar may contain small pieces of glass.

‘Therefore, this product could pose a safety risk if consumed. Please do not consume this product.

‘Instead, return any affected product to the store where a full refund will be given.

‘No receipt is required. Tesco apologises to our customers for any inconvenience caused.

The product listing on Tesco’s website reads: ‘A sweet and tangy sandwich pickle made with chopped vegetables.’

‘This pickle is the perfect relish for cheese, meat, sandwiches and much more. Vegetarian Friendly.

‘Classic recipe with finely diced vegetables for a smooth texture.’

Shoppers who have bought contaminated pickles are advised to call Tesco’s customer services department on 0800 505 55.

A product recall is issued by the Food Standards Agency when there is a problem with a food product which means it should not be sold.

When a product is recalled, customers will be asked to return it for a full refund.
