Tesco issue urgent recall for popular Birds Eye product

Birds Eye, one of the leading frozen food brands, has recalled one of its popular products – Aunt Bessie’s Crispy Onion Rings. The company has issued an urgent food recall notice due to an error in manufacturing which could lead to undeclared milk and egg being found in some of the products. The recall has been launched in supermarkets like Tesco, Iceland, and Ocado, and has been declared a possible health risk to those who have allergies or intolerances to the dairy ingredients.

Customers who have already purchased the product are advised to cut the packaging which shows the batch code and post it along with their contact details for a full refund. The company has also reached out to the main allergy organisations and urged customers to contact their freephone hotline or website for further information.

The affected product has a pack size of 375g with the batch code L3037 and the best before date of August 2024. The recall is a precautionary measure to ensure customer safety and avoid any serious health concerns. Birds Eye has apologized to its customers and promised to improve the manufacturing process to prevent such errors in the future.

This is not the first time in the past couple of weeks that popular products have been withdrawn from the shelves of supermarkets. Booths, the food retailer, has recalled its Two Lemon Bakewell Tarts because they could contain milk, which is not declared on the label. Similarly, Tesco issued a warning and recalled the Tesco Free From Bran Flakes as “some packs may contain a small amount of another cereal variant (chocolate pillows) that contain milk and hazelnut (nuts) which are not mentioned on the label”, the food giant explained.

The recall of these products highlights the importance of proper labelling and manufacturing processes in the food industry. The Food Standards Agency has also advised customers not to eat the affected products and to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

In conclusion, it is crucial to check food labels carefully, especially if you have any allergies or intolerances, and to follow the instructions in case of a recall. Manufacturers should take proper care in the production of food products and ensure proper labelling to avoid any health hazards to their customers.
