Tesco multinational grocery, based in Hertfordshire, England, is recalling two batch codes of its Tesco Takeaway Butter Chicken because their sauce contains cashew nuts that are not declared on the label. Thus, the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to nuts.

Product being recalled:

  • Tesco Takeaway Butter Chicken. Pack size: 385g. ‘Use by’ date(s): 24/01/2017 and 25/01/2017. Batch Code(s): L014K and L015K

A spokesman for the Food Standards Agency said, “If you have bought the above products and have an allergy or intolerance to cashew nuts, do not eat it. Instead return it to the nearest Tesco store for a refund (no receipt is required)."


Tesco is recalling the above product from customers and has contacted the relevant allergy support organizations, which will tell their members about the recall. The company has also issued a point-of-sale notice in stores. This notice explains to customers why the product is being recalled and tells them what to do if they have bought the product.

No other Tesco products are known to be affected.
