Action taken by the company

Flames Foods is recalling the above products from customers and has been advised to contact the relevant allergy support organisations, which will tell their members about the recall. The company has also been advised to issue a point-of-sale notice to its customers. These notices explain to customers why the products are being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the products.

Our advice to consumers

If you have bought the above products and have an allergy to mustard, nuts (almond), sesame, soya, and/or an allergy or intolerance to egg, and/or an allergy and/or intolerance to milk or milk constituents, and/or a sensitivity to sulphur dioxide and/or sulphites, and/or allergy and/or intolerance to wheat (gluten) do not eat them. Instead return them to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.

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 Then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.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