The Belgian manufacturer has pulled batches of its 380g jars, which sell for £2.25, as the metal pieces may pose a risk to consumers.

The sweet spread jars are sold at Tesco, Sainsbury's, Morrisons, Asda, Waitrose, Ocado and Nisa stores.

Those who have bought affected jars are urged not to eat it but return it for a full refund.

The recall was made after the spread maker was told by a firm outsourced to put the spread into jars that, for a time, "their metal detection was not adjusted for sufficient precision."

The Food Standards Agency said: "Lotus Bakeries UK Ltd is recalling various batch codes of Lotus Biscoff Crunchy Biscuit Spread because it may contain small pieces of metal.

"This product was sold at Tesco, Sainsbury's, Morrisons, Asda, Waitrose, Ocado and Nisa stores.

"In addition, batch number 7005109 with 'best before' date 5 February 2018 has also been sold through East End Foods.

"No other batches or Lotus Bakeries Spreads products are known to be affected.

"The product may contain small pieces of metal which could represent a safety risk.

"If you have bought the above product do not eat it. Instead, return it to the retailer from where it was bought for a full refund."

Affected Best Before dates are:

Batch code: 7005109
‘Best before’ date: 5 February 2018

Batch code: 7011209
‘Best before’ date: 11 February 2018

Batch code: 7019109
‘Best before’ date: 19 February 2018

Batch code: 7030309
‘Best before’ date: 28 February 2018

Batch code: 7039109
‘Best before’ date: 8 March 2018

Batch code: 7046109
‘Best before’ date: 15 March 2018

Consumers should return the affected jars to the retailer they bought it from to receive a refund.
