A precautionary recall for tinned Beef Ravioli that may be contaminated with rubber has been issued by Tesco and Sainsbury’s. 

The Food Standards Agency confirmed both retail giants issued the recall on Tuesday 12 July for two pasta products. Sainsbury’s has its Beef Ravioli in Tomato Sauce and Macaroni Cheese.
