ASDA recalls ASDA Frozen Smooth Mashed Potato because of undeclared gluten
ASDA is recalling ASDA Frozen Smooth Mashed Potato because a small number of packs may incorrectly contain potato croquettes instead of mashed potato. Potato croquettes contain wheat (gluten), which is not mentioned on the label. This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to wheat or gluten.

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 Then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.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