    Poundstretcher Recall Oreo Chocolate Crème due to Allergen Labelling Fault


    Discount-chain Poundstretcher has issued a recall for the four pack (176g) of Chocolate Crème Oreos, due to allergens ‘wheat’ and ‘milk’ being incorrectly labelled, not in bold type. This therefore puts customers with wheat (gluten) and milk (lactose) allergies and intolerances at high risk.

    Poundstretcher has 410 stores in the UK, selling food from a range of popular brands, home furnishings and electrical goods.

    The full product details, as listed by the Food Standards Agency, are as follows:

    -Product: Chocolate Crème Oreo 176g
    -Pack size: 4
    -Best before end dates: April, May, July and August 2017
    -EAN barcode: 7622300360375

    As reported by Healthline, those with gluten/wheat intolerance or allergy may experience the following symptoms if the allergen is consumed:
    • nausea and vomiting
    • diarrhea
    • irritation of the mouth and throat
    • hives and rash
    • nasal congestion
    • eye irritation
    • difficulty breathing

    Those intolerant or allergic to milk or milk constituents, or individuals who are lactose intolerant may experience similar symptoms also, with irritation to the digestive system and airways in more serious cases.

    The FSA informs those with allergies to wheat, milk or milk constituents who have bought the product to “not eat it. Instead return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.”

    “The company [Poundstretcher] has also issued a point-of-sale notice to its customers. These notices explain to customers why the product is being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the product.”
