A food recall is issued when there is a discovery made about a certain product that is deemed unsafe for the consumer. The latest warning comes from Morrisons who is warning customers about a popular snack pot item.

Morrisons is recalling its Onion Bhaji & Mango Chutney 110g product.

This is due to the product containing wheat which is not stated on the label.

The possible presence of wheat poses a threat to those with an allergy.

Morrisons as well as the Food Standards Agency (FSA) issued statements online.

Customers who have purchased this food item should look for the best before date of July 6.

The supermarket said: “Morrisons is recalling the above Use By date of this product because it contains wheat but this is not stated in the ingredient list on the product label.

“This means that the product is a potential health risk for anyone with a wheat (gluten) allergy or intolerance.

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

“We don’t need a receipt.”

The FSA added: “Sometimes there will be a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold.

“Then it might be ‘withdrawn’ (taken off the shelves) or ‘recalled’ (when customers are asked to return the product).

“Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.”

In other supermarket news, popular sweet brand Haribo has said it is facing “challenges” within its supply chain.

In recent weeks, many food and drink companies have reported that they are struggling with deliveries to shops due to the lack of lorry drivers.

One brand which is facing difficulty is Haribo who said they are experiencing a “surge in demand”.

In a statement, the company said: “Haribo are experiencing an unprecedented and sustained surge in demand.

“We are working flat out to manage the situation.

“We are faced with several challenges throughout our supply chain including a shortage of drivers.

“Whilst this demand is great news for the category and wider economy, it does mean we will have to review our activities plans with all our wholesale and retail partners to ensure the best availability possible is maintained.”

All Haribo sweets are said to be affected, including Goldbears and Tangfastics.

Customers have also noticed a lack of bottled water on supermarket shelves in the last week.

Danone Waters, which owns bottled water brands Evian and Volvic said: “We do not have the required amount of trucks and drivers to cover customer demand, this is due to a national shortage.

“As a result of this we have had to cancel or rebook many orders for delivery this week and next week. Apologies for the reduced service and availability impacts.”
