The use of the Red Tractor logo also caused anger.

However, Tesco has stated that the carrots were grown in the UK and had been incorrectly labelled.

Farmers were quick to hold the supermarket giant accountable.

In response to the backlash, the retailer confirmed there had been a labelling error and apologised for the confusion.

“[I] would like to reassure that all our carrots described as British are grown in the UK,” a Tesco’s spokesperson tweeted.

A spokesperson for Red Tractor added they were seeking reassurances that this will never happen again.

“We do not allow the use of our label for produce grown or reared outside of the UK”, the spokesperson tweeted.
