BUDGET supermarket Lidl has issued a product recall for all its tinned herring – because the labels don’t warn that the product contains FISH!
In accordance with rules set by the Food Standards Agency, every possible allergen must be displayed on all products, meaning that the herring was breaking these laws.
The Food Standards Agency said: “Lidl is recalling cans of Nixe brand assorted Herring Fillets (200g) because they contain one or more of the following allergens: fish, milk, egg, mustard and wheat (gluten) which are not mentioned in English on the label.
“This may result in a possible health risk to anyone with an allergy or intolerance to one of the above allergens.”
Lidl said all returned tins will be refunded.
