Lidl have issued an urgent recall on two of their Kania Gravy Granule products as they contain unsafe levels of a chemical used in paint thinner.
The Food Standards agency said that the contamination affected two batches of Kania Gravy Granules, which were found to contain xylene. The affected products are Kania Gravy Granules for Meat 300g and Kania Gravy Granules For Chicken 300g, with a best before date of October 2017 and November 2017.
Customers have been advised not to eat the products, and return them to the supermarket for a full refund.
Lidl has said it takes the issue "very seriously" and is working with its supplier to identify the cause.
Xylene is a petrochemical used as a solvent in products such as paints and inks, and exposure to xylene in food products represents a health risk as it can cause adverse effects such as headache, dizziness, nausea and vomiting.
