Morrisons recalls some seedless raisins

Morrisons has recalled its Value Seedless Raisins (500g) with 'best before' dates of October 2010, November 2010 and December 2010, because the product might contain small pieces of green plastic. The Agency has issued a Food Alert for Information.

Morrisons has recalled the affected product and has issued point-of-sale notices in stores. These notices tell customers why the product has been recalled. If you have bought these raisins, you can return it to the store for a full refund.

Product details

The recalled product is:

  • Morrisons Value Seedless Raisins (500g)
  • Best before end: October 2010, November 2010 and December 2010

The raisins are in a heat-sealed plastic bag, which has a yellow front and a yellow back. The raisins can be seen inside the bag.

No other Morrisons products are known to be affected.

Food alerts

If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). Food alerts are the FSA's way of letting local authorities and consumers know about problems associated with food and, in some cases, providing details of specific action to be taken. They are issued under two categories:

  • Food Alerts: for Action
  • Food Alerts: for Information

You can get FSA alerts either by email or SMS text. Visit the Get Alerts page at the link below to find out how.
