Boots has recalled packs of its Delicious Chocolate Brownie with a 'best before' date of 19 November 2013, because they have been packed with Boots Delicious Caramel Shortbread, which contains milk. This means the product is a possible health risk to anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents. The FSA has issued an Allergy Alert.

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 Then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.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 FSA 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 the 'Email updates' link in the box at the bottom of this page to find more details.
