Magnum ice creams are being urgently recalled over fears they contain plastic and metal.

Packs of the almond flavoured treats have been slapped with a ‘do not eat’ warning by the manufacturer Unilever. 

Similar contamination fears centred around classic Magnums last month.

Officials at the Food Standards Agency (FSA), which published both alerts, warn the products are ‘unsafe to eat’.  

The Magnum Almond Ice Creams typically sell in the likes of Tesco and Sainsbury’s for £3.25 for a box of three

Five batches of the Magnum almond ice creams that are sold in packs of three are affected by the recall. 

Only batches sold in the UK and Ireland with the best before date December 2025 carry the risk.  

Box of threes are typically sold in the likes of Tesco and Sainsbury’s for £3.25.

Only boxes with the batch code L3338, L3339, L3340, L3341 and L3342 are affected by the recall.

Unilever has also issued a point-of sale notice explaining why the products are being recalled and what to do if they have bought them. 

The manufacturer asks customers who have bought affected packs to ‘not consume the products’ and instead contacts their team for further guidance.

Unilever said: ‘We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your co-operation.’ 

The Magnum classics affected by March’s recall were also sold in boxes of three. 

The FSA issues food recalls – which ask customers to return a product – when problems are spotted that means a product should not be sold.  

Pieces of metal in food can cause injury and are a choking hazard for both children and adults.

Choking happens when the airway suddenly gets blocked, either partially or fully, but enough so that breathing is prevented.

If an adult’s airways are blocked, they may be able to clear the blockage themselves.

However, if coughing doesn’t solve the issue, back blows and abdominal thrusts can help. If these do not work, you should call 999 immediately.

The NHS warns that you should not give abdominal thrusts to babies under one or to pregnant women.

What to do if someone is choking

  1. Encourage the person to keep coughing, and remove any obvious obstructions from their mouth. If that fails, give five sharp blows to the back, between the shoulder blades. Check their mouth after each one.
  2. If they are still choking, stand behind them and put your arms around their waist above the belly button. Clench one fist and grasp it with your other hand. Pull sharply – and upwards – five times. Check their mouth each time.
  3. Call 999 if this fails. Continue giving five sharp blows followed by five sharp pulls. Start CPR if the person becomes unresponsive.
