Morrisons recalls fresh carrot cake
Morrisons is recalling its fresh carrot cake due to a packaging error. Some cake boxes with a 'use by' date of 24 or 26 May 2012, contain chocolate cake. The chocolate cake contains soya, resulting in incorrect allergen information. If you’re allergic or sensitive to soya, don’t eat this product. The Agency has issued an Allergy Alert.
The product being recalled is:
- Product: Morrisons Fresh Carrot Cake
- Use by dates: 24 or 26 May 2012
The company has recalled all the affected carrot cake. Customer notices will be displayed in stores to explain why the carrot cake has been recalled. Morrisons has contacted the relevant allergy organisations, which will explain to their members why the product has been recalled.
No other Morrison products are known to be affected.
About allergy alerts
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 Then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.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.
