"At the levels found, the risk from eating any of these foods is very small, but as a precaution it would be sensible not to eat them. The products have been withdrawn from sale," the Food Standards Agency (FSA) said in a statement.

A further 35 sauces and pates were recalled yesterday after tests showed they contained para red, the potentially cancer-causing printing dye.

Low levels of the illegal dye, which is normally used in printing ink, were discovered in products from Waitrose, Tesco, the Co-op, Asda, Iceland and Sainsbury's.
