FSA publishes the list of alerts for July to September 2017
The FSA has published a summary of food incidents handled between July and September 2017, where an alert has been issued by the FSA to recall products from sale.
Over the three month period, we issued 32 food notices, of which 18 were allergy alerts, with the top four undeclared allergens being milk, gluten, peanuts and soya.
We also issued four food alerts relating to physical contamination, two relating to chemical contamination and eight which involved poor food hygiene or microbiological risk.
The information published describes the overall details of the incident, the level of risk to consumers and what action we, industry and local authorities took.
The FSA has collated this data to make it easier for consumers to access incident information.
