Our advice to consumers

If you have bought any of the above products and have an allergy to mustard and/or an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents, do not eat them. Instead, return them to the store from where they were bought for a full refund.

Action taken by company

Kepak Frozen Division is recalling the above products from customers and has been advised by the FSA to contact the relevant allergy support organisations, which will inform their members of the recall. The company has also issued a point-of-sale notice which will be displayed in affected stores. These notices explain to customers why the products are being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the products.

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 Then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.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