THE Food Standards Agency (FSA) has warned shoppers that a number of products have been recalled by brands and supermarkets as they pose a safety risk to certain consumers.
The products have been taken off the shelves because the food contains ingredients not mentioned on the label or even certain foods have traces of the bacteria that can cause the food poisoning Salmonella.
Aunt Bessie’s has recalled Aunt Bessie’s Croquettes from Lidl because of an undeclared egg.
The Food Standards Agency said: “Aunt Bessie’s is recalling Aunt Bessie’s Croquettes because the packs may also include potato balls which contain egg which is not mentioned on the label.
“This means the product poses a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to egg.”
The agency has advised customers to not eat the product if they have an allergy or an intolerance to egg and instead return it to the Lidl shop where it was bought.
The pack size that has been recalled is the 550g with a best before end of June 2019.
Lidl has also recalled its Golden Sun Organic Grains because it contains Salmonella.
The Food Standards Agency said that the risk of salmonella “includes fever, diarrhoea and abdominal cramps” and the supermarket chain advised customers to not eat the product, but return it to the shop where they bought it for a refund.
Lidl Ireland has recalled its Deluxe Wild Salmon because they contain wheat, fish, milk, egg and mustard which are not mentioned in English on the label.
The FSA said: “This means the products are a possible heath risk for anyone with an allergy to fish or mustard and an allergy or intolerance to wheat, gluten, egg, milk or milk constituents”.
