Sainsbury's and Tescos recall ravioli and macaroni cheese over rubber 'health risk'
Sainsbury's and Tesco have recalled some of their tinned foods after fears they contain rubber.
Shoppers across the UK are being advised to take back the affected products, which pose a "possible risk to health", for a full refund.
The Foods Standards Agency has said both supermarkets are taking the action as a "precautionary measure". All the affected goods were manufactured by a Belgian company.

A Food Standards Agency statement said: "If you have bought any of the above products, do not eat it. Instead, contact the store from where it was bought for a full refund.
"No other Sainsbury's and Tesco products or batches are known to be affected."
A Sainsbury's spokesman said: "It has been brought to our attention a small number of the above products may contain pieces of rubber.
"As a precautionary measure, we are asking all customers who have bought these products not to consume them, and to return it to their nearest Sainsbury's store where they will receive a full refund.
"No other products or date codes are affected by this issue, and we apologise for the inconvenience this has caused."
