Asda has recalled a popular meal because it has undeclared mustard. Customers affected by this should not consume the product.
Asda made a statement regarding the recalled product.
This statement read: “Asda is recalling the above Use by Date Codes of Asda Italian Inspired Chicken & Bacon Pasta Bake (800g and 400g) because packs contain mustard which is not mentioned on the label.
“This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy and intolerance to mustard.”
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) issued a risk statement.
“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“Then it might be ‘withdrawn’ (taken off the shelves) or ‘recalled’ (when customers are asked to return the product).
“Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.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.”
