Morrisons recall dressing over allergy fears | Food | Life & Style

Customers have been told to return Morrisons Eat Smart Honey & Mustard Dressing because it does not state on the label that it contains egg and mustard.

Incorrect labelling poses a health risk to those with food allergies, the food watchdog said.

The supermarket giant was ordered to make the move by the Food Standards Agency because "the product poses a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance" to these ingredients.

Morrisons is recalling the product from customers and has been advised to contact allergy support groups to tell their members about the recall. 

The company has also issued a point-of-sale notice to its customers in their shops. 

A spokesman from the FSA said: "Morrisons is recalling the product from customers and has been advised to contact relevant allergy support organisations, which will tell their members about the recall. 

"The company has also issued a point-of-sale notice to its customers. 

"This product contains egg and mustard making it a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to egg, and or an allergy to mustard. 

"Sometimes there will be a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold. 

"Then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product).

"Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk. 

"When there is a food allergy risk, the FSA will issue an Allergy Alert."

Morrisons has been contacted by Express.co.uk for comment.
