Freemans Confectionery Supplies recalls Many Thanks Pralines with Hazelnut Filling
Freemans Confectionery Supplies is recalling its Many Thanks Pralines with Hazelnut Filling with a 'best before' date of 20 March 2014, as the product contains peanuts that have been labelled incorrectly as groundnuts. This means the product is a possible health risk to anyone with an allergy to peanuts.
The Agency has issued an Allergy Alert advising anyone with an allergy to peanuts not eat this product.
The recalled product is
- Many Thanks Pralines with Hazelnut Filling (115g)
- ’Best Before’ date: 20 March 2014
If you have bought the affected product and have an allergy to peanuts you are advised not to eat this product but to return it to the store for a full refund.
The company is recalling the implicated date code from sale and has issued information notices to its distributers. In addition, the company has contacted the relevant allergy support organisations, which will tell their members about the recall.
No other Freemans Confectionery Supplies Ltd products are known to be affected.
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 Then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.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 the 'Email updates' link in the box at the bottom of this page to find more details.
