The episode, called Troubled Waters, was last shown on TV on June 28 and HIT Entertainment, which produced the cartoon, apologised “unreservedly” to viewers.
The firm, which produces Bob the Builder, Pingu and Thomas the Tank Engine, said it had cut ties with the animation company responsible for the mistake.
A spokeswoman for HIT Entertainment said: “It has been brought to our attention that in an episode of Fireman Sam an image of the Koran is briefly depicted.
“The page was intended to show illegible text and we deeply regret this error. We sincerely apologise for any distress or offence it may have caused.”
“We will no longer be working with the animation studio responsible for this mistake.
“In addition, we are taking immediate action to remove this episode from circulation and we are reviewing our content production procedures to ensure this never happens again.”
