The bakery chain Greggs has been banned from selling its pasties as Cornish because it doesn't contain traditional ingredients.

A Cornish Pasty is made with beef, potatoes, onion and swede and the product Greggs was selling didn't.

They've also been told they can't use the label Cornish as they aren't made in the county. Greggs planned to move it's production to Cornwall but has instead decided to drop the Cornish tag.
