Tesco urgently recalls frozen croissants over nut label error in health risk


TESCO has immediately recalled its frozen croissants over a nut label error – warning customers not to eat the product.

The supermarket giant has recalled batches of frozen all-butter pastries because they may contain almonds — but the warning was not printed on the label.

The store chain accepted this batch, which costs £2.50 and with a best date of September 2022, may have been accidentally packaged with other croissants containing almonds.

The Food Standards Agency said: “Tesco is recalling Tesco Frozen All Butter Croissants 6 Pack because it may contain almonds (nuts) that are not mentioned on the label.

“Due to a packaging error some packs may have been incorrectly packaged with Tesco Frozen Almond Croissants, which contain almonds (nuts).

“This means the product is a potential health risk for anyone allergic to almonds (nuts).

“If you have purchased the above product and are allergic to almonds (nuts) do not eat it.

“Instead return it to the store it was purchased from for a full refund.”

The affected croissants are in a six-pack, weighing 255 grams and with batch code LL 111.

Tesco is asking buyers who bought them and returning them to the nearest store for a full refund.

People who are allergic to nuts and come into contact with some can go into anaphylactic shock.

In extreme cases, and without immediate treatment, their throats may swell and they may succumb.

The Anaphylaxis Campaign, which helps victims, said, “Anaphylaxis is a serious and potentially life-threatening allergic reaction that affects more than one body system such as the airways, heart, circulatory, gut and skin.

“Symptoms can begin within seconds or minutes of exposure to a food or substance and will usually progress rapidly. On rare occasions the onset may be delayed by a few hours.

“Common causes include foods such as peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs, shellfish, fish, sesame and kiwi fruit, although many other foods are known to trigger anaphylaxis.

“There can also be a dramatic drop in blood pressure (anaphylactic shock).

“This can lead to collapse, unconsciousness and – on rare occasions – death.”
