The Foods Standards Agency released a statement explaining the action the company has taken to protect their customers.
It read: “Thomas Tucker Ltd is recalling the above products from customers and has contacted the 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. These notices explain to customers why the products are being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the products.”
Thomas Tucker have issued notices to customers, advising them to return any of the above items to the store of purchase, where they’ll receive a full refund.
The FSA added: “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 Then it might be ‘withdrawn’ (taken off the shelves) or ‘recalled’ (when customers are asked to return the product).
“Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.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.”
This is not the only supermarket recall to have been issued in the last month.
