What is an allergy alert?
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Then it might be ‘withdrawn’ (taken off the shelves) or ‘recalled’ (when customers are asked to return the product).
Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.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.
