    Popular biscuit brand Lotus has issued a recall for specific batches of their Biscoff Crunchy Biscuit Spread due to concerns that it may contain small particles of metal.

    The recall comes after the co-manufacturers informed the company of insufficient adjustment of precision in their metal detectors for a certain period of time.

    These batches were sold in major chains Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, Morrison’s, and Waitrose, online retailer Ocado and convenience chain NISA.

    The product in question is the 380g glass jar of the spread, easily identifiable by the yellow lid. The ‘smooth’ variety of the spread with the red lid, and any other Lotus products of these or different best before dates are not affected.

    The affected batch numbers and best before dates, as reported by the Food Standards Agency and the Lotus website are as follows:
    • Batch No. 7005109 – Best Before 05/02/2018
    • Batch No. 7011209 – Best Before 11/02/2018
    • Batch No. 7019109 – Best Before 19/02/2018
    • Batch No. 7030309 – Best Before 28/02/2018
    • Batch No. 7039109 – Best Before 08/03/2018
    • Batch No. 7046109 – Best Before 15/03/2018
    The notice on the Lotus website recommends those who have purchased the spread from these batches to return them for a full refund:

    “Lotus Bakeries urgently recommends that Lotus Biscoff Crunchy Biscuit Spread from the affected batches should not be consumed.”

    “Consumers should return the affected jars to the retailer they bought it from to receive a refund. If this is not possible, consumers should send the yellow lid ONLY to the following free-post address, including their full name, address and UK postcode. They will receive a full refund.”

    The product is advertised as ‘ideal Toast Topper’ and is popular with families and children as a sweet treat, similar to chocolate spread or peanut butter.
