© Provided by Trinity Mirror Plc Lidl bosses have warned customers against using a line of gravy granules they sell as they may be contaminated with a chemical that causes dizziness, nausea and vomiting.

The supermarket chain have said their Kania Gravy Granules, Meat and Chicken 300g packets contain a chemical contaminant known as xylene.

If the chemical is eaten it has been known to cause a ‘health risk’.

The Food Standards Agency have stated: “Exposure to xylene in food products represents a health risk as it can cause adverse effects such as headache, dizziness, nausea and vomiting. The contaminant levels in this product exceed those set to minimise this risk and the product is therefore being recalled as a precaution.”

Lidl packets that are being recalled are those weighing 300g with a best before date of October 2017 and November 2017.

A Lidl spokesperson said: “If you have bought the above product, do not eat it. Instead, return it to a Lidl UK store for a full refund. Other Kania products are not affected by this recall.”
