Supermarket chain Co-op has issued an urgent recall of selected batches of its Salmon En Croute product, as they contain prawns that were not disclosed on the packaging.
Although this does not pose a risk to everyone, if you have an allergy to crustaceans the risk is very high and potentially life-threatening.
Read on for the details on affected batches of Co-op's Salmon En Croute and what to do if you've bought them.
This recall covers:
The inclusion of crustaceans in the relevant batches of Salmon En Croute was not flagged on the labels due to a 'packaging error', says Co-op.
Co-op has today recalled the products and contacted relevant allergy associations to warn their members about the recall.
The supermarket chain has also placed warning notices at checkouts in its stores explaining what to do if you have bought the affected products.
If you have bought an affected Co-Op Salmon En Croute and have an allergy to crustaceans, do not eat the product.
You should instead return the product to your nearest Co-op for a full refund.
