Costa Coffee has issued a food recall for a product that contains an undeclared allergen.
The coffee shop chain calls back Costa coffee British Roast Chicken Salad Sandwich because it contains mustard which is not mentioned on the label.
This means that the product could pose a possible health risk for mustard allergy sufferers.
Affected are products with use by date September 11, 2022, September 12, 2022, September 13, 2022, September 14, 2022, September 15, 2022 and September 16, 2022.
Customers are advised to return the product to Costa shops for a full refund.
The recall stated, “Customer safety is of the utmost importance to Costa Coffee and we take any issues related to the production of our food extremely seriously.”
What is a product recall?
If there is a problem with a food item that means it should not be sold, it can be “withdrawn” (taken from the shelves) or “recalled” (when customers are asked to return the product).
The FSA issues Product Withdrawal Information Notices and Product Recall Information Notices to inform consumers and local authorities of food-related issues.
In some cases, a “Food Alert for Action” is issued.
This will provide local authorities with details of specific actions to be taken on behalf of consumers.
