Take them back and demand your money back and some UK grown carrots.
Threaten to inform Trading Standards too!

P.S.
That's good enough to me to say stuff any deal with the EU.
Pull up the drawbridge!
More like stuff Red Tractor and tell the perpetrators to stuff it up their arse.................where is Guy Smith anyway? He has never posted on the forum since he got the job.

Got f**k all to do with the EU!

Westminster voted against country of origin labelling being law - gave Tesco et all the green light to pull sh*t like this.

So thats your own governments doing - whether the 'drawbridge' is pulled up or not

We have plenty of land in the UK that grows good carrots. We won’t/don’t need them from Spain.
Both sides of my family grew 1,000‘s of tons of them before we joined the EEC.
That also goes for Potatoes, Parsnips, Onions and Celery.

Like most things EU, the labeling laws have a hole you can march coach and horses through. The ' Place of Provenance ' conveniently allows for food to change nationality if it's from "the country where the product last underwent substantial, economically justified processing.

The whole thing is a sham and con, has been for years.

We have the same packaged Tesco carrots here, one bag says "Grown in Shrops, UK", the other "Grown in Yorks, UK".
