Tinned fish re­call – for hav­ing fish


Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

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.
