TK Maxx and Homesense have withdrawn three Kintra Foods Organic Premium Leaf Teas after insects were found in the products.

In a joint statement with the Food Standards Agency (FSA), a store spokesman said: “If you have bought any of the above products do not consume them. Instead, return them to any TK Maxx or Homesense store for a full refund. For further information, please contact TK Maxx/Homesense Customer Services on 01923 473561 or [email protected].”

The products were on sale between April and this month.

We’ve got two TK Maxx stores in Bedford – one in the Howard Centre and another at the Interchange Retail Park. There’s also a Homesense in St John’s Retail Park.
