Mencia Luna Beberide 2011 vintage withdrawn
E H Booths is withdrawing all batch codes of Mencia Luna Beberide 2011 vintage, because a labelling error means sulphites are not mentioned on the label. This makes the product a health risk for those with a sensitivity to sulphites. The FSA has issued an Allergy Alert.
The product being withdrawn from sale is:
- Product: Mencia Luna Beberide wine 2011 vintage
- Batch codes: all batch codes of 2011 vintage
- 'Best before' date: all date codes of 2011 vintage
The company has withdrawn all batch codes of the 2011 vintage from sale. Customer notices will be displayed in stores explaining to consumers why the products have been withdrawn. The company has also contacted the relevant allergy support organisations, which will tell their members about the withdrawal.
If you have bought this product and have a sensitivity to sulphites, do not drink it. Instead, return it to your nearest E H Booths store for a full refund.
No other vintage is 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 Then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.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 FSA 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.
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. To sign up to this free service, simply send the text message 'START ALLERGY' to the number 62372. To unsubscribe, just text 'STOP ALLERGY' to the same number.
