Both Sainsbury’s and Tesco announced last night that they were recalling the pasta - manufactured by Noliko N.V in Belgium - due to a risk to customer health.

A statement from Tesco said: “We have been made aware that a small number of Tesco Ravioli cans may potentially contain pieces of rubber. We are recalling affected batch codes as a precautionary measure.”

Sainsbury’s advised “customers who have bought these products not to consume them, and to return it to their nearest Sainsbury’s store where they will receive a full refund.”

The beef ravioli and macaroni cheese tins are labelled as own-brand products.

Both firms apologised to customers for any inconvenience caused and stressed that no other products were affected.
