Updated: The Village Bakery Markethill recalls various own-branded bakery products because of incorrect allergen labelling

Northern Ireland specific

The Village Bakery Markethill is extending its recall of numerous bakery products because they contain further undeclared or incorrectly labelled allergens and further affected products. This means the products are a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to soya, mustard, sesame or celery or an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents, wheat (gluten), oats (gluten) or barley (gluten). Please see attached customer notice PDF for the allergens in each affected product.

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 Then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk. When there is a food allergy risk, the FSA will issue an Allergy Alert.
