Bisto chicken gravy

Premier Foods has recalled two types of Bisto chicken gravy granules over fears they may contain pieces of metal.

The supplier has recalled 33,600 packs of its Bisto chicken gravy granules – the majority of which are thought to have been sold through to consumers.

Premier said the issue had been caused by friction between two components on the production line at its site in Worksop, Nottinghamshire, which produced metal fragments that may have ended up in packs.

The issue affected a single batch of its 170g Bisto For Chicken Gravy Granules and 170g Reduced Salt Bisto For Chicken Gravy Granules. Both products are from batch code L5208 and carry a best-before date of January 2017.

Anyone who has purchased the product is urged not to consume it.

Premier said no other Bisto products were affected by the recall, and apologised for any inconvenience caused. The supplier produces around 11 million packs of Bisto chicken gravy a year, and said the incident should cause no supply issues.
