Waitrose has urged shoppers to check their cupboards as a selection of items that could cause a health risk. A food product sold in Tesco has also recently been recalled due to allergy fears.


Waitrose Chocolate Mini Cupcakes (pack of nine)

The supermarket giant has shared a warning for one of its own brand products.

The chocolate cupcakes may contain walnuts that are not mentioned in the ingredient list.

This would make the product unsafe for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to nuts.

The supermarket explained the mix-up was caused as some products have been mis-packaged.

Therefore, certain items labelled as the Chocolate Mini Cupcakes could actually be Coffee and Walnut Mini Cupcakes instead.

The affected batches have the best before date of October 6, 2020.

Point-of-sale notices have been released and are displayed in stores with more information.

The notices state: “If you have an allergy to nuts please do not consume.

“Return the product to your local Waitrose & Partners branch for a full refund.

“We apologise that it has been necessary to recall this product and for the inconvenience caused.”

This product is also stocked in Waitrose as well as in Tesco and on Ocado.
