Home Farm Speciality Foods has withdrawn the above products and is recalling them from customers with an allergy or sensitivity to celery, wheat or sulphites, because the allergens have not been correctly mentioned on the allergen labelling information. This poses a risk to those who may only check the allergen labelling information rather than the ingredients list.
Customer notices will be displayed in stores, explaining why the products are being withdrawn and the actions customers can take if they have purchased the product(s).
If you have bought the above product(s) and are allergic or sensitive to celery, sulphites or wheat, do not eat it.
The products will be over-stickered with the correct information and placed back on sale.
No other Home Farm Speciality Foods products/batches are known to be affected
About Allergy Alerts
Sometimes there will be 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 Then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.
In such situations the Agency will issue an Allergy Alert. It is also possible to subscribe to an email alert system to receive automatic messages whenever Allergy Alerts are issued. Click on 'Get alerts' in the box at the bottom of this page to find more details.
