Espresso Warehouse recalls two Wooden Spoon products due to incorrect allergen labelling

Espresso Warehouse is recalling two Wooden Spoon products, Gluten Free Chocolate & Pear biscuits and Lemon Melt biscuits because they contain soya, milk and wheat (gluten) which are not emphasised correctly on the label. This means these products are a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents or wheat (gluten), or an allergy to soya.

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 Then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.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