Tesco, Asda, Morrisons and Sainsbury's recall burgers with 'don't eat' warning

Tesco, Asda, Morrisons and Sainsbury's are urging some customers to get a refund if they've bought a certain batch of branded burgers.

It comes as Linda McCartney Foods has recalled all batch codes of its vegetarian 1/4LB burgers (227g) with a best before date of January 2024. The reason for the recall is the item contains an allergen, milk, which isn't listed on the packaging as an ingredient.

A point-of-sale notice has now been issued to all customers. These are used to notify customers about the recalled product, as well as advising what shoppers should do if they have already purchased the item.

Each supermarket that sells the burgers has also issued its own separate notice. Tesco, for example, said: "If you’ve bought an affected product and have an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents, please don’t eat it.

"Instead, return it to a Tesco store for a refund. No receipt is required.

People should check their freezers to see if they have a pack of the burgers at home.
