Lamond bakery products withdrawn in Scotland
Lamond the Baker is withdrawing three products in Scotland from the Co-operative and Scotmid co-operative stores, because they contain egg, which is not mentioned in the allergy advice box. This means the products are a possible health risk to anyone who is allergic or intolerant to egg. The Agency has issued an Allergy Alert.
Anyone who is allergic or intolerant to egg is advised not to eat this product.
The affected products, with best before dates between 8 and 12 August 2011, are:
- Lamond Perkin Biscuit (pack of 10)
- Lamond Coffee Bun (pack of 8)
- Lamond Banbury Biscuit (pack of 10)
Lamond has withdrawn the affected products and notices will let consumers know about the recall. If you have bought an affected product you can contact Lamond Bakers on 01563 523 178. The relevant allergy support organisations have also been contacted, which will inform their members of the recall.
Only products supplied specifically to the Co-operative and Scotmid co-operative stores in Scotland are being recalled. No other Lamond the Baker 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 Then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.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.
