Marks & Spencer and Ocado have issued a food recall warning for items sold in their stores. The products contain allergens which are not listed on the label in English.

They could cause a serious health risk for anyone who has an allergy or intolerance.

The unlisted allergens include almonds (nuts), celery, fish, mustard, pistachios (nuts) and soya.

Also, they are not suitable for those with an allergy to cereals containing gluten, egg, milk and milk constituents or a sensitivity to sulphur dioxide and/or sulphites.

The Food Standards Agency website stated: “Picard is recalling these products from customers and has been advised to contact the relevant allergy support organisations, which will tell their members about the recall.

“The company has also issued a point-of-sale notice to its customers.

“These notices explain to customers why the products are being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the products. Please see the attached notice.”

The Picard products being recalled are sold by Marks & Spencer UK and Ocado.

The recall warning is specific to items sold in England only.
