Urgent product recalls from leading supermarkets

Product warning
Product warning

Four of the UK’s leading supermarkets have issued urgent product recalls after some food items were incorrectly labelled, putting shoppers with severe allergies at risk.

Tesco, ASDA, Morrisons and Waitrose have all had items recalled after ingredients including milk, gluten and soya were missed off the allergy information on several products.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) issued the allergy and food alerts, and urged customers to check recently bought items as they may contain allergens which are not listed on the packet.

Customers who bought the mislabelled goods are advised not to consume them, and to return them back to the shop where they will be given a full refund.

The full list of recalled products and where they were sold:
