Aldi, Costa and Tesco urgently recall popular food products over allergy fears

food products

Tesco, Aldi, and Costa have all issued urgent recalls of popular food products because they might contain ingredients that are not on the label which could be dangerous to people with allergies.

Unlisted ingredients that could be dangerous to those with allergies include eggs and nuts.

Shoppers are urged to double-check their purchases, as the Food Standards Agency (FSA) warns that they may contain ingredients not listed on the label.

What items are affected?

Costa Coffee - British Roast Chicken Salad Sandwich

The product is being recalled as it includes mustard, which has not been listed on the label, making it harmful to those who are intolerant.

No other Costa products are said to be affected.

Symptoms of a mustard allergy could involve: a rash, hives, itchiness, trouble breathing, feeling dizzy, nausea, abdominal pain, swelling of the throat. Other symptoms are possible.

Aldi - Bramwells Tartare Sauce

The FSA advises customers: "If you have bought the above product and have a sensitivity to sulphur dioxide and/or sulphites, do not eat it. Instead, return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.

"Aldi is recalling Bramwells Tartare Sauce because it contains sulphites which is not mentioned on the label. Due to mis-packing, Bramwells Tartare Sauce labels have been incorrectly applied to Bramwells Horseradish Sauce. This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with a sensitivity to sulphur dioxide and/or sulphites."

Aldi's notice read: "Customers are asked to return this product to their nearest store, where a full refund will be given.

"We apologise that this product did not meet our normal high standards and thank you for your co-operation."

Aldi advises customers to visit aldi.co.uk or contact customerservice.aldi.co.uk/contact for more information.

Lotte Pepero Snowy Almond

This is a biscuit product which has been recalled because its ingredients don't include peanuts and sesame, which have not been listed on the label.

Both of the ingredients could be potentially fatal to those who have allergies and manufacturer Unisnacks Europe Ltd. has issued a recall announcement, contacted allergy support organisations, and issued a point-of-sale notice to its customers.
