Booths withdraws Edamame Bean Stir Fry
EH Booths and Co Limited is withdrawing some of its Edamame Bean Stir Fry because it contains soya, which is not listed on the label. This means the product should not be eaten by anyone who is allergic or sensitive to soya. The Agency has issued an Allergy Alert.
The product being recalled is:
- Booths Edamame Bean Stir Fry, 300g
- 'Use by' dates: 22, 23, 24, 25, 26 March 2013
If you are allergic or have a sensitivity to soya, please do not eat this product.
Customer notices will be displayed in stores, explaining to customers why the product has been withdrawn and that they can return it for a refund if they are allergic or sensitive to soya. The company will also contact the relevant allergy support organisations which will inform their at-risk members of the withdrawal.
No other E.H. Booths and Co Limited 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 Then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.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.
