Allergen related recall

Sainsbury's recalls tortilla chip product Thursday 12 October 2006 Sainsbury's has recalled 150g packs of its own-brand ‘Taste The Difference Lightly Salted Tortilla Chips’ because a packaging error has led to them having the wrong allergen labelling information. The Agency has issued a Food Alert for Information.

Product recall details
Taste The Difference Lightly Salted Tortilla Chips 150g
Best Before: 24 February 2007
Some packs may contain ‘Spicy Multigrain’ instead of ‘Lightly Salted’ variety. This means they contain whey protein and oat gluten, which are not labelled as ingredients, so they aren't safe for people who are allergic to dairy and oats, or are gluten intolerant.
The company is recalling the product and has issued product recall notices in all its stores and in the national press on 12 October 2006. No other products are known to be affected.
Sainsbury's has also contacted the Anaphylaxis Campaign and Allergy UK. These organisations are informing their members who are allergic to dairy and oats of the recall via their websites and a mailshot.
