Yogurts sold at Tesco and Asda face urgent recall over fears they contain metal
Yogurts sold at some of the UK's leading supermarkets are being urgently recalled over fears they contain metal fragments.
Manufacturer Danone has stopped selling three of its yogurt ranges sold at stores including Tesco, Morrisons and Asda amid concerns they could pose a serious health risk if eaten.
They are also sold at stores such as Sainsbury's, Ocado and Waitrose.
The issue is being blamed on a problem with a third-party supplier.
The firm's 115g peach passion fruit tubs with a use by date of March 31, and its 120g Activia 0% Fat pots and its 110g Intensely Cream four-pack product, both of which expire on April 2, have reportedly been affected.
Anyone with an affected batch is advised not to eat them and return them to the supermarkets. A full refund is available.
The recall does not affect other Danone products.
The food scare is the latest in a series of recalls for supermarkets.
Just last month, five people were believed to have died and hundreds more seriously ill after eating chicken contaminated with salmonella.
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) recalled products from Southern Fried Chicken (SFC), Vestey Foods and Chicken Inn, both of which are sold at stores such as Tesco, Sainsbury's, Morrisons and B&M.

The processed chicken ranges, sold as frozen breaded pieces and nuggets by several UK supermarkets, have been linked to 480 salmonella cases, with more than a third needing hospital treatment. Almost half (44%) of those affected were aged 16 and under.
At least one death was officially recorded as relating to the outbreak, according to public health officials.
