EDIT: Both Wairose and Morrisons have also had products recalled because of the same issue. The affected products are: Morrison's Carrot & Swede Mash 500g, and Waitrose Creamy Golden Smoked Haddock In Cheese Sauce 400g 

The Food Standards Agency website contains this information:

The FSA is advising anyone who has bought these products not to eat them and return them to the shop where they were purchased. The pieces of metal which may be present are potentially harmful, so people should check whether they have bought any of the products. A number of potato salad and coleslaw products were recalled on Friday 8 May because of the potential presence of small pieces of metal. A subsequent food chain investigation of these products by the retailers and manufacturer identified the affected batch of potatoes and the other products it was used in. Initial investigations suggest a piece of equipment broke up on the manufacturing line, resulting in the fragments of metal going into the batch of potatoes.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sainsbury's and Tesco have both issued urgent product recalls of certain food products containing potato as they may have been contaminated with metal pieces. 

You are advised not to consume these products, and you can return them to a store for a full refund. Tesco have specified that no receipt is required.

The issue was first found with a potato salad dishes, but Sainsbury's have taken the extra precaution of recalling ALL potato containing ready meals produced by this supplier.

    The above list just goes to show that all these products are produced in the same factory! All different 'names' but all from the same place!
