Easter was not such a great time for those people who suffer from allergies. There were a number of recalls from some high profile chocolate brands all due to allergens not being declared on the packaging:
Lindt Easter Egg
Thorntons Easter Egg
Food allergies and intolerances are life changing. In the UK they affect around 8% of children and 2% of adults.
By law, any prepacked food or drink sold in the UK must clearly state on the label if it contains the following ingredients: - celery, cereals that contain gluten, crustaceans, eggs, fish, lupin (lupins are common garden plants, and the seeds from some varieties are sometimes used to make flour), milk, molluscs, mustard, tree nuts, peanuts, sesame seeds, soybeans, sulphur dioxide and sulphites.
It's important that you can trust the food you are buying. Please make sure that you check the link at the bottom of this email each week to see if you or anyone you know might be affected by any products being recalled.
