Undeclared allergens

Meanwhile, British Supermarket Tesco is recalling Tesco Frozen All Butter Croissants 6 pack because it may contain almonds (nuts) not mentioned on the label. Due to a packaging error some packs may have been incorrectly packed with Tesco Frozen Almond Croissants. This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to nuts.

In England, Aye Pickled Ltd is recalling its Curried Kraut because it contains mustard which is not mentioned on the label. This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to mustard.

In the US, Casper’s Ice Cream is voluntarily recalling its 56 ounce tubs of Red Button Vintage Creamery Canadian Vanilla Ice Cream because a limited number were mispackaged with Burnt Almond Fudge Ice Cream containing undeclared almonds.

The recalled Red Button Canadian Vanilla ice cream were distributed throughout the mountain west states in Associated Foods retail stores.

Blue Moose of Boulder of Colorado, US is voluntarily recalling Blue Moose Spinach Artichoke Parmesan Dip, 7oz. as the dip contains undeclared tree nut (Cashew) and soy allergens.

People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to cashews or soy run the risk of reaction if they consume these products. This product was available in Vons, Albertsons, and Pavilions Grocery Stores located throughout southern California as well as the Las Vegas, Nevada area.
