A food recall is issued when there is a discovery made that is deemed unsafe to the consumer. The latest recall comes from Morrisons who is recalling six sponge cakes due to the product containing milk which is not mentioned on the label.

The retailer is recalling its six iced buns, with all best before dates affected.

There are six sponge cakes in the pack, two topped with icing and sugar strands, two chocolate sponge cakes topped with chocolate and sugar chocolate nibs and two cakes topped with strawberry flavour icing and pink coloured sugar nibs.

Morrisons is recalling the sweet treat because the product contains milk which does not appear in bold in the ingredient list of its label.

This means the product is a possible health risk for anything with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents. 

Morrisons said: “Please do not eat this product and return it to your nearest store for a full refund.

“You do not need a receipt.

“No other products are affected by this issue.

“We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause and assure customers of our continuing commitment to the highest standard of product quality and safety.”

The supermarket giant also has a number of other food recalls in place at the time of writing.

It is also recalled Itsu’s vegetable fashion gyoza, which come in a pack of 300g.

Twenty dumplings are included in the pack and a dipping sauce is also included.

The packs are being removed from shelves because the dumplings may contain seafood gyoza.

This poses a potential health risk to anyone with an allergy to seafood including crustaceans, molluscs and fish.

Customers need to look for a best before date of April 11, 2022.

Morrisons said: “For a full refund please send a picture of the best before date on the packaging to: [email protected] or write to us at: Itsu [grocery], 40 Broadway, Westminster, London, SW1H 0BU.”

The supermarket is also recalling its Nutella B-ready bars in packs of six, 132g.

They said: “Morrisons is recalling all dates of this product where product labelling is in Polish, because it contains wheat, barley, hazelnut, milk and soya allergens that are not declared in English on the label.

“This means the product could pose a possible health risk to anyone with an allergy or intolerance to these allergens.

“This recall only concerns the Polish labelled product. All other product is not affected.”

Customers should return the food item to their nearest store for a full refund and no receipt is required.
