Product Recall: Now even your READY MEALS aren't safe

What a day it has been for product recalls, eh? IKEA Child safety gates, Nissan/Toyota/Honda car airbags and now Sainsbury's tell us that even our ready meals are not safe.

Sainsbury's have confirmed that they are recalling 23 product lines as they've concerns that these potato-containing chilled ready meals may contain tiny pieces of metal. There is a HUGE list (at the bottom of this article) though so check your fridge/freezer to see what you've got and spread the word.

If you find that you have any products which are affected you can either contact the Sainsbury's Careline on 0800 636 262 or visit the customer service desk in any of their store and you should be able to get yourself a refund.

    I received a letter from Sainsbury's on 16th May 2015 informing me of the 'possible presence of tiny metal pieces in a Be Good to Yourself Fish Pie w hich they had now withdrawn from the shelves. Well I have now eaten mine as I bought it a couple of weeks ago. I seem to be okay. I see from your website that there are literally dozens of recalled items from the ready made section. this was not explained in my letter. So thank you fro this information.
