Food wholesaler Booker recalled packs of its Happy Shopper tomato ketchup because some of the products might contain pieces of plastic.
The recall applied to 440g packs of the sauce with a best-before date of March 2019. The products had the batch code 7269 and were sold in Londis and Budgens stores across the country.
In a statement, Booker said: “We are taking the precautionary step of recalling some of our Happy Shopper tomato ketchup with the batch code indicated, due to the possibility of plastic contamination.
‘Sincerely regret any inconvenience’
“We are asking all customers who have this batch not to consume it. Please return it for a full refund. We sincerely regret any inconvenience caused to our customers.”
A labelling error has sparked the recall of packs of health food manufacturer Co Yo’s dairy-free coconut milk yogurt, because they contained dairy milk, which was not mentioned on the label.
The presence of milk meant the products were a possible health risk to consumers with an allergy or intolerance to the ingredient.
Co Yo recalled all pack sizes of the yogurt with a use-by date ranging from February 23 2018 to March 3 2018 (see box below for a full list of affected products).
Allergy or intolerance
A statement on the Food Standards Agency’s website advised consumers that had bought the yogurts, and had an allergy or intolerance to milk, not to eat them and instead return them to the store where they were bought to receive a full refund.
Meanwhile, last week, plastic and metal contamination forced the recall of packs of frozen fish cakes from seafood processor Young’s.
A Young’s spokesman told FoodManufacture.co.uk the contamination occurred during the manufacturing process and was caused by a damaged forming plate.
