Tinned tomatoes recalled for being ‘potentially explosive’

A popular brand of tinned tomatoes has been recalled amid fears they could explode while being opened.

SPC Ardmona has recalled a batch of 400 gram Peeled Vine Ripened Tomatoes as they could cause an injury to people opening the cans.


“Due to increased pressure in the can caused by a breakdown in the can lining integrity, these food products may cause injury when opening,” SPC said in a statement.

The affected products have been sold in Coles, Woolworths and independent supermarkets and have the code TOM W/P 428580 007CM on the tin’s base.

Customers are being told dispose of the products and contact SPC on 1800 805 168.
