E H Booths is recalling a number of sandwiches because they contain rye and oats which are not mentioned on the label. This means a potential health risk for anyone with an allergy to rye or oats.

Affected sandwiches are the Lancashire Cheese and Chutney, BLT and Chicken Salad sandwiches. All single packs have been affected and all use by dates. No other E H Booths products have been affected.
