Walkers Snack Foods withdraws a batch of Walkers Sensations Lime and Coriander Chutney Poppadoms due to the undeclared presence of egg and shrimp
Allergen: Egg and crustaceans (shrimp)
Due to a packaging error, one batch code of the above product does not contain the correct product, resulting in incorrect allergen labelling. The presence of egg and shrimp is not declared on the label. This poses a health risk to those who are allergic or have an intolerance to egg and/or are allergic to shrimp.
- Walkers Sensations Lime & Coriander Chutney Poppadoms, 82.5g
- 'Best before' date: 21 December 2013
- Batch number: 21 12 13 GBN 210 246
Action taken by the company
The company is withdrawing the implicated batch code from sale. Customer notices will be displayed in stores to alert consumers to the reasons for the withdrawal and to explain the actions they can take if they have purchased this product. In addition, the company has contacted the relevant allergy support organisations, which will inform their at-risk members of the withdrawal.
No other Walkers Snack Foods products are known to be affected.
