The cheese being recalled is sold in Tesco and on Amazon. It could cause a risk for anyone with an allergy to nuts.

President Mini Cheese Selection

Lactalis McLelland Ltd has recalled the cheese selection which is sold in some supermarkets.

This is because some packs contain nuts which are not mentioned on the packaging.

The presence of nuts could be dangerous for anyone with an allergy or intolerance.

The affected packs at 136.6g with the best before date of May 24, 2021.

Point of sale notices have been issued to stores where it is sold which offer more information.

A statement from the manufacturer said: “As consumer safety is our top priority we are recalling President Mini Cheese Selection 136.6g because they may contain nuts, which is not mentioned on the label.

“This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to nuts.”

It continued to say customers can return the product to stores for a full refund.

“If you have bought the above product and are allergic to nuts, do not eat it,” the statement read.

“Instead, return it to the store from where it was purchased for a full refund.”

Lactalis McLelland Ltd has also contacted the relevant allergy support organisations to issue updates to members.

Tesco also recently recalled a number of baby food products due to a possible choking hazard.

The products are also sold in supermarket chains including Asda and Morrisons.

The Food Standard Agency website said: “Nutricia is recalling Cow & Gate and Aptamil Muesli products because some packs have been found to contain pieces of apple stalks.

“The presence of the apple stalks presents a choking hazard to babies making these products unsafe to eat.”

Customers can return the products to stores for a full refund.
