If you've bought this Quorn product, you need to return it now...
Quorn, a healthy meat substitute, have had to recall 12,000 packets of its frozen meat-free mince.
The reason for the Quorn mince recall is due to the mince may actually contain small pieces of metal...not what you imagined when they said it's a 'good source of iron'.
So if you, like many of the millions of people have decided to save the planet/be healthy and go vegetarian for lent, then you may need think again, perhaps God is giving you a sign.
The Foods Standards Agency warned customers not to eat the product because it represented a safety risk.
If you have recently bought a 300g bag of Quorn meat-free mince before the 27th February 2017 at a Tesco store, (apparently the metallic mince is exclusive to Tesco stores) then you can go back to Tesco and get a full refund.
People have taken to Twitter to discuss the issue:
misread the quorn mince recall as "containing small pieces of meat" which 4 some reason shocked me more than "pieces of metal"— bertolt bassett (@largeautomobile) March 2, 2017

Don't know what Quorn customers are fretting about.— FakeNews (@HaroldHotspur) March 2, 2017
Last time I looked, metal was vegan.
...but at least it added some flavour.
