The supermarket discovered that some of the chocolate cakes contained walnuts, which are not mentioned on the label.

The affected Tesco's finest chocolate cakes are ones that serve six people with a 'best before' date of 17 January 2018 and batch code D32/18003.

In a statement, Tesco said, 'We have been made aware by our supplier that due to a manufacturing error that a small number of boxes from one date code have been incorrectly packed with carrot cake.

'The carrot cake contains walnuts and as such will have the incorrect allergen information on the packaging.

'Please return the affected product to store where a full refund will be given. No receipt is required. 'Tesco apologises to our customers for any inconvenience caused.'

Food Standards Agency said, 'If you have bought the [mentioned] product and have an allergy to nuts, do not eat it. Instead return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.'
