Greencore recalls wraps in metal contamination alert

Food-to-go giant Greencore has recalled Chicken and Bacon Caesar Wraps produced for Aldi, Co-op and Morrisons over fears they may contain pieces of metal.

The business has recalled the products as a precautionary measure, as they could present a safety risk.

Greencore said "a small number" of products that originated from its site in Manton Wood, Worksop, have been recalled due to a contamination issue the company identified in one of its raw materials.

"Having launched an immediate investigation, Greencore was able to quickly establish that the contamination took place at the site of one of its suppliers," stated the company.

"Greencore operates to the very highest standards of food safety and quality, and is working closely with the supplier concerned."

The affected products are:
