Egg sandwiches recalled over poor labelling

Two egg products sold in British supermarkets have been subject to product recalls.

Booths is recalling its free-range egg mayonnaise sandwich because it contains egg and mustard which are not mentioned on the label. This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to egg or mustard, said the Food Standards Agency (FSA).

Booths is recalling the product from customers and has been advised by the FSA to contact the relevant allergy support organisations, which will tell their members about the recall. The company has also issued a point-of-sale notice to its customers. This notice explains to customers why the product is being recalled and tells them what to do if they have bought the product.

Separately, SPAR is recalling its egg mayonnaise sandwich filler, 220g, as the product has been incorrectly labelled with a ‘use by’ date of 17 January. The product should have been dated 2 January.

Point of sale notices will be displayed in all retail stores that are selling the product, said the FSA. These notices explain to customers why the product is being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the product.
