Tesco has issued an urgent product recall to its customers asking them to return a children’s product.
The product recall notice was circulated online by Tesco, warning customers and asking them to check the product if they had one which was affected.
The recall came into effect after the wrong labels were put on the packs of Tesco Mal All-In-One Chesty Cough & Cold Lemon Sachets, suggesting kids aged 12 years and over can use the product.

As a result of this, 78,000 packs of the cough and cold sachets were taken off the shelves in Tesco and the recall was issued.
MHRA’s chief safety officer, Dr Alison Cave, said: “Patient safety is always our priority and we are committed to ensuring that the medicines you take are safe.
“It is vitally important that people check their packs of Tesco Max All-In-One Chesty Cough & Cold Lemon Sachet and check if they have an affected pack.
“If they do, they should stop using them and return them to Tesco for a refund.
“We would like to reassure patients and parents that if you or someone under the age of 16 have used recently these sachets and have suffered no ill-effects there is no cause for concern.
“If anyone has any questions please speak to your healthcare professional and report any adverse reactions via the Yellow Card scheme.”
The affected batch numbers are batch number 9MW0145 with the expiry date Nov 2022; batch number 0CW0054 with the expiry date Jan 2023 and batch 0FW0133 with the expiry date May 2023.
