A batch of 'Little Willies' vegetarian sausages has been recalled from supermarket shelves amid fears they could contain pieces of hard plastic.
Dutch manufacturer The Vegetarian Butcher is warning customers some packs of the meat-free treat may be unsafe to eat following a 'production error'.
The warning applies to the 160g packs of the Lincolnshire-style banger with an expiry date of April 22 to May 15, 2019.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has since announced the recall of the product and said: “Please be reassured that this quality issue applies to this batch only and does not affect the quality or safety of any other product from The Vegetarian Butcher.
“A thorough investigation is underway to ensure this does not happen again.”
'Little Willies' with an expiration date after May 16, 2019, are safe to eat.
The FSA added: “If you have bought the above product, do not eat it. Instead, return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.
