Family butcher F L Edge & Son has withdrawn a range of sausages because the packaging did not mention the presence of wheat and celery.
The company’s plain, chipolata, Harling pork and sage and onion sausages have been removed from stores owned by its retail customers including Morrisons and Tesco.
Chutney and chilli jam recall
Crafty Dog Cymru has also recalled chutneys and chilli jams due the presence of sulphites, which were not declared on the product label.
Sulphites can trigger asthma attacks and allergy-like symptoms in people who are sensitive to the food additive.
Affected chutney flavours were: caramelised red onion, tomato and chilli, apple, beetroot and red onion, mango, rhubarb and ginger, courgette, sweet tomato and chilli and pear and apple.
Pasties contain fish and barley
Jasats Family Bakers has been forced to withdraw cheese and onion pasties because a fish and barley ingredient was left off the label.
The Lancashire pie company’s products were seen as a health risk to people with allergies to fish or barley.
Meanwhile, avoiding costly product recalls will be one of the subjects covered at the Food Manufacture Group’s food safety conference tomorrow (September 29).
The one-day conference will examine the latest developments to ensure food safety from the farm, through manufacture and the supply chain, to products and packaging on sale.
Taking place at the Lowry in Manchester, the event will provide the latest information on what more the industry can do to reassure consumers about the safety and authenticity of the food they eat.
