Morrisons recalls own-brand yoghurt
Tuesday 8 January 2008
A number of Morrisons Low Fat Summerfruit Yoghurt film lids have been incorrectly placed on Low Fat Dessert Style Yoghurts, which are otherwise fully and correctly labelled.
The company has recalled the mislabelled Low Fat Dessert Style Yoghurts because they contain gluten and egg, which makes them a possible risk for customers with a gluten intolerance or egg allergy. The Agency has issued an Allergy Alert telling anyone with an allergy to egg or an intolerance to gluten not to eat this product.
- Low Fat Summerfruit Yoghurts, 4 x 125g
- Use by: 17 January 2008
The company has recalled the affected stock and has contacted the relevant allergy support organisations, which will inform their members of the recall. Notices are being displayed in all Morrisons stores explaining why the product has been recalled. Anyone who has bought the product can return it to Morrisons for a full refund.
No other Morrisons products are known to be affected.
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 Then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.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.
You can get details of all the latest allergy alerts as soon as they're issued by getting the details sent as a SMS text message direct to your mobile phone.
