Waitrose recalls Waitrose Thrive Fish Pie because of undeclared egg

Waitrose is recalling Waitrose Thrive Fish Pie because it contains egg which is not mentioned on the label. As a result of a packaging error some packs contain a beef lasagne with egg as an ingredient but which is not declared on the label. This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to egg.

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 Then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.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