Potato products recalled from Sainsburys, Waitrose and Morrisons

Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and Morrison’s are recalling a number of food products after a batch of potatoes used as ingredients in all of them was found to contain small pieces of metal. The affected batch of potatoes originated from a single supplier.

A number of potato salad and coleslaw products were recalled on Friday 8 May because of the potential presence of small pieces of metal. A subsequent food chain investigation of these products by the retailers and manufacturer identified the affected batch of potatoes and the other products it was used in.

Initial investigations suggest a piece of equipment broke up on the manufacturing line, resulting in the fragments of metal going into the batch of potatoes.
