The Co-operative recalls jars of pasta sauce

The Co-operative is recalling four types of its Truly Irresistible pasta sauces, because the products might contain small pieces of glass. All jars of the four sauces are being recalled from customers. The Agency has issued a Food Alert for Information.

Point-of-sale notices will be displayed in The Co-operative's stores, explaining to customers why the sauces have been recalled. If you have bought any of the products, please call The Co-operative on 0800 0686 727 (free to call on UK landlines) for a full refund.

Product details

The products being recalled are:

  • Co-operative Truly Irresistible Sun Dried Tomato and Basil
  • Co-operative Truly Irresistible Tomato and Mascarpone
  • Co-operative Truly Irresistible Tomato and Olive
  • Co-operative Truly Irresistible Tomato and Chilli

The affected sauces are sold in 340g glass jars and all ‘best before’ dates are affected.

No other The Co-operative 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If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product).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. Click on 'What is RSS' on the left of this page for more details.
