Tesco has stated that it is recalling its Double Strength Apple and Blackcurrant squash following complaints from customers.
The news was announced on the company’s Twitter page today, with the page admin confirming that the product had been pulled from shelves.
Responding to a query from a Twitter user, Tesco said: “Tesco No Added Sugar Double Concentrate Blackcurrant & Apple Squash 750ml have been recalled. Thanks”.
The item has since been removed from the company’s website also, although the specific reason behind the move has not been revealed as of yet.
In response to further queries on the company’s official Twitter page, admin replied that Tesco was currently investigating complaints about the product.

Suspicions have been raised since though, after one Twitter user tweeted Tesco to say that his pregnant girlfriend had been drinking the juice and had been ill.
