Happi Free From has issued a food recall on Oat M!lk Chocolate Bars (80g), supplied to Tesco, because they contain undeclared milk. This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents.
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) issued a risk statement regarding the recall: “This product contains milk making it a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents.”
It explained that Tesco was taking steps to ensure the safety of customers.
The supermarket giant stated: “Happi Free From is recalling the above product from customers.
“The company has issued a point-of-sale notice to its customers.
The FSA explained: “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“Then it might be ‘withdrawn’ (taken off the shelves) or ‘recalled’ (when customers are asked to return the product).
“Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.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.
