Tesco recall their Double Strength Apple & Blackcurrant Squash

Tesco have confirmed a product recall of their Tesco No Added Sugar Double Strength Apple and Blackcurrant Squash.  This is due to a flavour additive being added in error.


Affected bottles will have been purchased after the New Year and have a best before date of October 2015.

Tesco have issued the following statement:

We have investigated with our supplier complaints about Tesco No Added Sugar Double Concentrate Apple and Blackcurrant 750ml and 1.5l. A flavour additive, which is not part of the ingredients for this product, has been added in error. The additive is called Dimethyl Disulphide and is a common ingredient in food products. It is an approved additive and poses no food safety risk. However, it does have a strong odour, similar to garlic which customers are likely to find unpleasant. We have withdrawn the product from sale. Only products bought since the New Year may be affected, they will have a best before date of October 2015. Any customers can return this product, open or unopened, to any Tesco store.

If you have this product please return it to your local Tesco for a full refund. If you have any concerns call Tesco on 0800 505555.
