On October 9 MPI issued a recall notice for four batches of Value Brand Viva Italia Chopped Tomatoes in Juice (400g), and yesterday added another batch to the notice.

The recalled tins will be marked SMS1 J213, TTA1 J213, TTA1 J214, TTA1 J215 or TTA1 J217, on the bottom of the can.

The product was sold at New World, Pak'nSave, Four Square, Gilmours and Trents nationwide.

The recall does not affect any other Value Brand Products or Viva Italia products.

A Foodstuffs spokesperson said they had received a total of 27 reports of stones in cans from customers.

MPI said there have been no reports of associated injury, but if anyone has consumed a recalled product and has concerns about their health, they should consult a doctor.

Customers can return affected products to their retailer for a full refund.
