Similarly, in Canada Shivani brand Bhatura Atta and Missi Atta have been recalled due to the presence of undeclared wheat. The CFIA says the products were distributed in Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan.
In the UK, Lakeland has also recalled its Flower & White, Bake On Strong White Bread Flour due to the presence of wheat not declared on the label. Customers are being advised by Lakeland to return the flour to their nearest branch for a full refund.
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has also announced the recall of Picard frozen food products, as they contain various allergens which are not declared in English on the labels. The FSA lists the full range on products affected by the recall on its website, which only applies to England.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has announced the recall of eggs distributed by Hilly Acres Farm in Newfoundland and Labrador due to a possible contamination with Salmonella. A full list of product codes affected by the recall is listed on the CFIA’s website.
In Germany, the Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL) has announced the recall of Kikkoman’s Sesame Dressing. During tests on the product, the BVL found that the sesame seeds used contain ethylene oxide, and “therefore do not meet the strict requirements of the European Union for food safety.” The BVL says the product was sold nationwide across several states.
