Apol­ogy over al­lergy claims

Yorkshire Post - - NEWS -

THE IN­VES­TI­GA­TION comes a month af­ter Coun Gibson apol­o­gised for “in­ap­pro­pri­ate” com­ments he made about the death of a 15-year-old girl who had an al­ler­gic re­ac­tion to a Pret A Manger sand­wich.

He had writ­ten: “I think the Pret a Man­ager [sic] case shows that if you have an al­lergy it’s your re­spon­si­bil­ity to ask the re­tailer if the item you are pur­chas­ing con­tains the in­gre­di­ents you are al­ler­gic to. It shouldn’t be the re­spon­si­bil­ity of the re­tailer to list ev­ery sin­gle in­gre­di­ent.”

Natasha Ed­nan-Laprouse died in 2016 from a baguette which had no al­ler­gen ad­vice on its wrap­per.
