Urgent recall warnings are not often issued but are something that should be taken very seriously. Recently, customers who have been shopping in ASDA, Waitrose and Iceland are being urged to double check their purchases. Food products from these stores have been recalled amid allergy fears as they contain ingredients not listed on the packaging. Two products have milk content not listed which could be very dangerous for those who have an allergy or intolerance.
The product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents.
