The affected packs are 225 grams and have the batch code L0075004.

A Tesco statement said: “If you suffer from sensitivity to sulphur dioxide or sulphites, please don’t eat this product.

“Instead, return it to a Tesco store where a full refund will be given. No receipt is required. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
