Fry’s Mushroom Country Style Pie

Fry’s Family Foods is recalling the pie product which is sold in Sainsbury’s stores.

The food item contains milk not listed as an the, according to the latest update on the Food Standards Agency (FSA) website.

It said: “Fry’s Family Foods is recalling Fry’s Mushroom Country Style Pie because it contains milk which is not mentioned on the label.

“This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents.”

The affected packs are 266 grams with the use by date of June 12, 2020.

The recall has been issued as a packaging error means some boxes actually contain chicken and ham pie.

This means the product is also not suitable for those who avoid eating meat.

The product is sold in other supermarkets but the error is only thought to affect Fry’s Mushroom Country Style Pies from Sainsbury’s stores.

The FSA website continued: “Fry’s Family Foods is recalling the above product 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 product is being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the product.”
