Labelling errors have sparked a number of food and drink recalls over the past month, featured in this photogallery.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has issued allergy warnings for a range of products that do not mention allergens on their packaging.

Discount retailer Lidl has recalled two products – its Sol & Mar Squid in Sunflower Oil products because they contain salt crystals not mentioned on the packaging, as well as chocolate drinking straws with labels that were not in English.

Also featured in this gallery are products from Everest Cash & Carry and Brioche rolls sold in Co-op stores.

Meanwhile, last month, Asda was forced to recall packs of its own-label baby food, after one of the products was contaminated with small pieces of plastic.
