Supermarket Iceland is recalling one of its curries because some packages contained a completely different dish – with an undeclared substance.

Iceland sells frozen ‘takeaway chicken’ ready meals, which can be reheated at home.

But some of these packages actually contain another curry – ‘takeaway creamy butter chicken’.

As the name suggests, the butter chicken package contains milk.

Milk allergy It is rare in adults, but “can be severe for life” in a minority, according to the British Society of Allergy & Clinical Immunology.

Food manufacturers must make it clear if they sell anything with allergens in it.

But anyone buying the affected packages from Iceland will not know the items contain milk.

Around 1 in 10 Britons are lactose intolerant, so could get sick if they eat dairy products.

Iceland has been approached for comment.

Earlier this year Iceland debuted Loans to customers who can’t afford food – but shoppers are encouraged to borrow only if they are really in trouble.

A pilot program saw borrowers apply for short-term “microloans” through the Icelandic Food Club, run by the charity Fair for You.

Families can claim between £25 and £75, repaid in weekly installments of £10, and have a maximum credit support of £100 at any given time.

Once approved, the loan will be transferred to the Food Club card, which can be used to pay for online or in-store purchases in Iceland supermarket and The Food Warehouse.

Iceland’s chief executive, Richard Walker, said the £75 debt to be repaid in eight weeks would cost the borrower £2.89 in interest.

If someone borrowed the minimum amount of £25, this would attract 40p in interest, he said.

The interest rate payable is 45%, or 55.6% APR, according to Fair for You.

Meanwhile, some short-term loan providers, underwriters and door-to-door lenders can charge interest rates as high as 1,557.7% APR.
