A major snack producer has issued a product recall after pieces of plastic were discovered inside packets of crisps.

KP Snacks issued the warning over some McCoy’s multipacks with a best before date of June 15 and a code number of 3066.

The products affected are six-packs of classic, salt and malt vinegar, and cheddar and onion — as well as 15-packs of classic flavour.

A statement released by the firm said: “KP Snacks Limited regrets to announce that it has received a small number of complaints from consumers regarding small pieces of plastic in four varieties of McCoy’s multipacks.

“As a precautionary measure, KP Snacks has initiated a voluntary recall of these varieties.

The safety and quality of our products are non-negotiable priorities for the company. We sincerely apologise to our consumers for any inconvenience caused by this voluntary recall.”

Anyone who has bought the affected products is advised to return them unopened to KP Snacks for a full refund.
