Recall Roundup: Allergen labelling edition
In our latest instalment of Recall Roundup we look at food and beverage recalls in the UK and US that have occurred over the last week.
There have been numerous food and beverage recalls in the last week due to incorrect allergen advice being printed on labels.
Our first example is from the UK, where Heathwick Ltd is recalling Saugatuck Brewing Co. Neapolitan Milk Stout and Blueberry & Maple Stout because they contain milk and oats (gluten) which are not mentioned on the label.
The Saugatuck Brewing Co. Neapolitan Milk Stout comes in a pack size of 355ml and the recall includes all best before dates. Meanwhile the Saugatuck Brewing Co. Blueberry & Maple Stout product comes in a pack size of 355ml, with the recall affecting all best before dates.
