SuperValu Salted Peanuts recalled
Budgens, Londis and SuperValu have recalled some of their SuperValu Salted Peanuts, because one batch of the product has been found to contain aflatoxins at levels higher than the regulatory limits. The levels of aflatoxins found are not considered a safety risk. However, if you have bought any of the product do not eat it. The Agency has issued a Product Recall Information Notice.
SuperValu Salted Peanuts (200g)
- 'Best before' 30 April 2013
- Batch code 022154
Budgens, Londis and Supervalu have recalled the affected batch of product from consumers. Product recall notices have been displayed in stores that sell the product, explaining to customers the reason for the recall.
Customers who have purchased the above product are advised not consume it but to return it to the store to obtain a full refund.
No other Budgens, Londis or SuperValu products are known to be affected.
About product withdrawals and recalls
If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). The Food Standards Agency issues Product Withdrawal Information Notices and Product Recall Information Notices to let consumers and local authorities know about problems associated with food. In some cases, a ‘Food Alert for Action’ is issued. This provides local authorities with details of specific action to be taken on behalf of consumers.
You can get FSA alerts about product recalls and withdrawals either by email or SMS text. Visit the Get Alerts page at the link towards the bottom of this page to find out how.
