The UK’s largest coffee chain has urged customers not to eat certain products in its stores after it emerged they could contain stones.

It comes after the Food Standards Agency (FSA) said the products are “unsafe to eat” because they may be a choking hazard.

Costa Coffee warned anybody who has purchased one of their chicken & bacon wraps, southern fried chicken wraps, chicken salad sandwiches or BLT sandwiches since Wednesday that they are unsafe to eat.

Anyone who has purchased one of the above products since Wednesday can return them to the store where they are eligible for a full refund.

A spokesman for the coffee chain said: “Costa Coffee is recalling four savoury items, listed below with use by dates. We have been notified by our supplier of a possible presence of small stones that could be a choking hazard if consumed.

“Customers who bought any of the products listed should not eat them and instead, please return to a store, with or without a receipt, for a full refund.

“We take this matter extremely seriously and sincerely apologise for any concern this recall has caused.”
