Products recalled over allergen fears

14 March 2016

Two products have been recalled because of undeclared allergens.

The Food Standards Agency announced that the products, from two different manufacturers, contained preservatives that weren’t listed on packaging.

“This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with a sensitivity to sulphur dioxide or sulphites,” the FSA said. 

One of the products, a Luxury Apple and Port Cheese Bomb by Shorrocks Cheese, was also found to contain mustard in addition to sulphites. 

The affected products are: 

EDMAL Chrzan Tarty Horseradish
290g glass jar
Dates on the product appear as: 'NP 17/11/15' (this means the product was produced on 17 November 2015) and 'DW 17/05/2016' (this means display until 17 May 2016) 

Luxury Apple and Port Cheese Bomb
‘Best before’ date: all dates up to and including 25 January 2017
