Nuts removed from store because labelling does not state, 'May contain nuts' Print

2013-05-02

 

An Ulverston [NW England] supermarket has been forced to take perfectly good packets of nuts off the shelves ? because they may contain nuts.


All Booths supermarkets are affected by the labelling issue that means packets of its own brand Whole Hearted Roasted Monkey Nuts have had to be withdrawn. [Monkey nuts is a British synonym for peanuts].


Because the packs do not carry a specific warning stating that they contain peanuts, the company has issued instructions for the product to be taken off the shelves.


Ulverston store manager David Sellers said it was an unusual decision but his staffs have fully complied with the orders.


He said: ?What we have done is pull the stock and returned it to central distribution.


?We don?t believe it is a problem. We have sold the product forever ? there is nothing wrong with it.?


A statement from the Food Standards Agency said: ?EH Booths is withdrawing some batches of its Whole Hearted Roasted Monkey Nuts because the presence of peanuts is not declared on the label.


?This makes the product a possible health risk to those who are allergic to peanuts.
