Product Recall: Bisto might have metal in it
Those Bisto kids loved the smell of gravy, but not so much if they end up ingesting loads of bits of metal. That's right, thousands of Bisto gravy products are being pulled from shelves today as they might have dangerous bits of metal in them.
Premier Foods, who make Bisto, have recalled 50,000 or so tubs of Bisto For Chicken Gravy Granules and Reduced Salt Bisto For Chicken Gravy Granules. They're keen to point out that not all of the 170g tubs would contain steel shavings, but it is best to not take any chances when there's a batch with bits of metal in them.
Spokesman Steve Marinker said: "After some maintenance there was a fault which occurred in a filler bowl on the production line and there was some rubbing against the metal bolts, and that is what created this issue."
"The company apologises to Bisto consumers for any inconvenience caused."
Customers who have bought the products, which have the production code BBE JAN 2017 L5208 printed on their bases, should take them back to the stores where they were bought, where they'll get a full refund. The retailers have been informed, so don't let them try any funny business.
