PACKS of vegetarian sausages called “Little Willies” sold in Tesco and Waitrose are being recalled because they contain chunks of hard plastic.
The Dutch company behind the veggie bangers, The Vegetarian Butcher, is urging customers not to eat them over fears they could be harmful.
The Vegetarian Butcher is recalling packs of Little Willies
The Licolnshire style, soy-based sausages recently sent shoppers into fits of giggles over their name after they were spotted on the shelves in Tesco and Waitrose.
They come in packs of six and cost £3, but affected batches have a expiration date between April 22 and May 15 2019.
You’ll find the date on the bottom right hand side of the packaging on the front of the product.
Shoppers are being advised to alert the manufacturer in exchange for a full refund.
Your product recall rightsPRODUCT recalls are an important means of protecting consumers from dangerous goods.As a general rule, if a recall involves a branded product, the manufacturer would usually have lead responsibility for the recall action.
But it’s often left up to supermarkets to notify customers when products could put them at risk.
If you are concerned about the safety of a product you own, always check the manufacturer’s website to see if a safety notice has been issued.
When it comes to appliances, rather than just food items, the onus is usually on you – the customer – to register the appliance with the manufacturer as if you don’t there is no way of contacting you to tell you about a fault.
If you become aware that an item you own has been recalled or has any safety noticed issued against it, make sure you follow the instructions given to you by the manufacturer.
They should usually provide you with more information and a contact number on its safety notice.
In some cases, the manufacturer might ask you to return the item for a full redund or arrange for the faulty product to be collected.
You should not be charged for any recall work – such as a repair, replacement or collection of the recalled item.
You’ll need to take a photograph of the packaging with the expiry date visible and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Little Willies” in the subject line.
If you’re not able to email then you can post the empty plastic packaging and the sleeve no later than May 10 2019 to: The Vegetarian Butcher, Antwoordnummer 10356, 4800VB, Breda, The Netherlands.
You must include your name, address, email address and phone number so the company can contact you.
Customers will then be sent instructions on how to claim their refund.
The firm has assured customers that that packs with use by dates after May 16 are safe to eat.
