Asda withdraws batch of curry sauce mix pots in health alert

Have your say

Asda has withdrawn some pots of its Chip Shop Curry Sauce Mix with a ‘best before’ end date of October 2016 because the pots contain a cheese sauce mix.

The product label does not mention the presence of milk. The Food Standards Agency says this means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents.

The pots concerned have a batch code 5291

A Food Standards Agency spokesman said: ‘If you have bought the above product and have an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents, do not eat it. Instead, return the product to the Asda store from where it was bought for a full refund or contact Asda Customer Relations on 0800 952 0101.’

He added that Asda has withdrawn the product from sale and has contacted the relevant allergy support organisations, which will tell their members about the withdrawal. Point-of- sale notices will be displayed in stores. No other Asda products are known to be affected.
