One “had to resort to opening them in a vice”, while another said: “Good job I had a pair of grips in the shed.”
Chris Cooper, 77, from Sevenoaks, Kent, said trying to loosen the lid by steaming it then plunging the jar in boiling water proved futile.
He said: “It’s not even possible for a young and fit person to do it, let alone pensioners.”
Tesco declined to comment but it was understood the retailer is working with its supplier to adjust the jars, which cost £1.10.
Customers who are affected can get a refund.
