NO MOO Chocolate Puddings

Iceland released the warning as the item was found to contain milk which is not listed on the packaging.

This could cause a serious health risk for anyone who has recently bought the product.

The Food Standard Agency (FSA) website said: “Iceland is recalling NO MOO Chocolate Puddings because they may contain milk which is not mentioned on the label.

“This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents.”

The affected pack sizes are 160 grams and with any best before date codes up to and including 13 July 2021.

Iceland has issued the recall as a warning to anyone who may be affected by the product.

The FSA website added: “Iceland is recalling the above product from customers and has been advised to contact the relevant allergy support organisations, which will tell their members about the recall.”

Point-of-sale notices have also been issued to stores that give information on the recall and explain what shoppers should do if they have the item.

Those who have bought the product and have an allergy or intolerance are being urged not to eat it.

Instead, the item can be returned to the store where it was bought for a full refund.

Food recall warnings are not often released but something that should be taken seriously by consumers.

When there is a problem with a food product, it will often be ‘withdrawn’ or ‘recalled’.

When an item is withdrawn due to a problem, it is taken off the shelves in stores.

Recalls are issued to ask customers to return an item to store.

A food product will be withdrawn or recalled if it is thought to pose a risk to consumers due to missing information on the packaging or any other food allergy risk.

No other Iceland products are known to be affected.

Earlier this month, Waitrose issued an urgent food recall on Waitrose Two Aberdeen Angus Beef Burgers with red wine & herbs.

The product was flagged as it was found to contain undeclared ingredients.

It contained wheat, or gluten, that had not been listed on the packaging.

This could cause a serious risk for anyone who is intolerant to gluten or wheat. 

Anyone with the affected item were asked to take it back to the store for a full refund.
