Signature Flatbreads UK recalls wraps due to possible presence of metal

Signature Flatbreads UK is taking the precautionary step of recalling its ‘Village Bakery 8 Tortilla Wraps White’ because of the possible presence of metal.

The wraps come in packs of eight, with each tortilla weighing 62g. The impacted packs are those with a best before date of all dates up to and including 29 April 2024.

Signature Flatbreads UK is working with the relevant food and police agencies to investigate the cause of the contamination. Point of sale notices will be displayed in all retail stores that are selling this product.

Anyone that has bought this product should not eat it and return it for a full refund.
