Raw Ecstasy Wasabi Miso flavoured Activated Walnuts and Activated Almonds recalled
Raw Ecstasy is recalling all batch codes of its own-brand Wasabi Miso flavoured Activated Walnuts and Activated Almonds, because the products contain mustard seeds, which have not been mentioned on the label. This is a potential health risk to anyone with an allergy or intolerance to mustard. The Agency has issued an Allergy Alert.
The product being withdrawn is:
- Raw Ecstasy Wasabi Miso flavoured Activated Walnuts, 70g
- Raw Ecstasy Wasabi Miso flavoured Activated Almonds, 70g
- All date and batch codes
If you have an allergy to or intolerance of mustard and have bought either of the above products, please do not eat it. Instead return it to the store where you bought it for a full refund.
The company has recalled the above products from sale and will be re-labelling them with the correct information. Customer notices will be displayed in stores to tell consumers why the products are being recalled and that they can return them to the store for a full refund. The company will also be contacting the relevant allergy support organisations, which will inform their at-risk members of the withdrawal.
No other Raw Ecstasy 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 Then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.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 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.
