UK supermarket chain Tesco has recalled Carmarthenshire Boksburg Blue Counter Cheese – in light of ‘production and hygiene’ concerns.

The supplier reportedly failed to follow proper procedure, and did not receive approval from the Food Standards Agency (FSA) prior to production.

As a result, Tesco is left in the dark regarding the company’s ‘production and hygiene procedures’.


Those who have purchased the product are able to return it to Tesco for a full refund.

The FSA has said that the product poses no immediate risk to consumer health.

A Tesco spokesperson said: “We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused.”
