Co-op recalls Indian cooking sauces

The Co-op is recalling three of its Truly Irresistible Indian Cooking Sauces, because the acidity levels are too low. As the acidity levels are too low, this means micro-organisms may grow and the sauces will be past their best before the 'best before' date that appears on the jar. The Agency has issued a Food Alert for Information.

More information about 'best before' dates can be found at the link below.

The products listed below are being recalled. Point-of-sale notices will be shown in stores, explaining to customers why the products have been recalled. If you have bought an affected product you can call Co-op Customer Relations on freephone 0800 0686 727 to arrange for a full refund.

Product details

The products being recalled are:

  • Co-operative Truly Irresistible Tikka Masala Sauce
  • Co-operative Truly Irresistible Korma Sauce
  • Co-operative Truly Irresistible Karahi Sauce
  • Best before: All dates
  • Packaging: Glass jar, 350g

No other Co-op products are known to be affected.

Food alerts

If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). Food alerts are the FSA's way of letting local authorities and consumers know about problems associated with food and, in some cases, providing details of specific action to be taken. They are issued under two categories:

  • Food Alerts: for Action
  • Food Alerts: for Information

You can get FSA alerts either by email or SMS text. Visit the Get Alerts page at the link below to find out how.

You can also subscribe to our Really Simple Syndication (RSS) feed for food and allergy alerts. RSS is a format for distributing news content and is a simple way to keep up to date with the latest news on a website. When we publish via RSS, you can automatically get the updated content via a 'news aggregator' or 'news reader'. Our RSS feed will contain a brief summary and link back to our web content.
