Many angry customers have accused Tesco of keeping theproduct  recall “hidden form view” and not posting details on its website or in stores.

Tesco said a flavour additive had been accidentally added in the production process, which posed no safety risk but had a “strong odour” and this is what the disgruntled customers were complaining of .

The firm said the additive, Dimethyl Disulphide, which was  added to the squash in error was a common ingredient in food products and was safe.

Tesco commented on the recall saying:”It is an approved additive and poses no food safety risk. However, it does have a strong odour, similar to garlic which customers are likely to find unpleasant,”.
