The Food Standards Agency (FSA) issued a recall for Ramona’s Heavenly Original Houmous over fears it may contain pieces of plastic.
Sold in Tesco, Sainsbury’s, and Morrisons, customers who have purchased the product have been urged to check the use-by date.
Though not all batches are affected, those that are contaminated pose a serious risk to consumers.
The FSA explained: “The possible presence of plastic presents a possible choking hazard and makes this product unsafe to eat.”
Point of sale notices have been issued in all stores that sell the product and retailers will offer a full refund to those affected.

In the food recall statement, the brand Ramona’s stated that the “do not eat” warning was “a precautionary measure”.
They urged customers to simply return the items to their nearest store where they will receive a full refund.
No receipt is necessary to obtain the reimbursement, though it is only applicable to the batch code affected.
No other products or batch codes are affected by this issue other than those with a use-by date of July 28.
A spokesperson for the brand said: “We are really sorry about this but delivering the best quality product is our number one priority and we cannot take the risk of you finding plastic in the product.”
The product retails for £3 in Tesco, Sainsbury’s, and Morrisons, and is currently available online. Ocado also sells the popular dip for an inflated price of £3.25.
