Painkillers have been found in ice cream cones sold by Tesco.

Customers are being told not to eat Tesco’s own brand chocolate and nut ice cream cones after tablets were spotted in two cones.

The supermarket giant is taking the packs of four off the shelves with sell-by dates up to and including July 2014 after the warning by the Food Standards Agency.

A spokesman for Tesco said: "As a precautionary measure, we have issued a product recall. We are urgently investigating this incident with our supplier and ask customers to return this product to their local store."

A spokesman for the Food Standards Agency said: ‘If you have bought the product, do not eat it. Instead, return it to the store where you bought it for a full refund or contact Tesco customer services on 0800 50 55 55."

    this is just a problem about labelling, all they need to do is put 'contains painkillers' on the box.
