A food recall is issued when there is a discovery made about a product that is deemed unsafe for the consumer. The latest food recall comes from Morrisons over a crisp range which could contain milk not mentioned on the label. This poses a possible health risk to those with a milk allergy or intolerance.

Eat Real is recalling its Puffs range with best before dates up to and including May 2022.

This is because the food may contain milk which is not listed on the label.

Anyone with a milk allergy or intolerance who has purchased these snacks should not eat them.

A statement from Eat Real said: “If you have purchased this product and you have a milk allergy or intolerance, please:

“Do not consume the product.

“Return the pack and its contents to your point of purchase for a full refund.”

The crisps are sold in various different supermarkets but at the time of writing, Morrisons is the only retailer to have issued the recall.

Product recall:

– Eat Real Quinoa Puffs Mediterranean 113g

– Eat Real Quinoa Puffs White Cheddar 40g

– Eat Real Quinoa and Kale Puffs Jalapeño and Cheddar 40g

“No other products are affected by this issue.

“Eat Real apologise for the inconvenience this may cause and assure customers of their continuing commitment to the highest standard of product quality and safety. Any queries can be directed to [email protected]

Eat Real added: “As always, our focus is on our customers’ safety, and we are in the process of removing the impacted product from shelves and supply chains.

“We are very sorry that this has happened. As a brand we hold ourselves to incredibly high standards and we are disappointed that we failed to meet those. Please know that we’re doing everything we can to make sure this doesn’t happen again.”

In other food recall news, Sainsbury’s is also recalling snacks due to them containing milk which isn’t mentioned on the label.

The supermarket said: “It has been brought to our attention that packs of Off The Eaten Path Caramelised Onion & Balsamic Vinegar have been flavoured with Thai Chilli & Lime seasoning rather than Caramelised Onion & Balsamic Vinegar and contain undeclared milk as an ingredient.”

Customers who have purchased the food item should look for the best before date September 11, 2021.

Those who have bought the bag of chips in a 120g size, and who have a milk allergy, should call the customer careline on 0800 274777.

Sainsbury’s added: “No other products have been affected by this issue. PepsiCo would like to apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.”

The supermarket has also issued a recall on packs of Knoppers Wafers.

The batch codes affected are B12N, B12M and B16C.

Sainsbury’s said: “The affected batches have different labels and do not consistently highlight or declare peanuts, soya or milk on the packaging making them unsuitable for customers with an allergy to those ingredients.”
