    Waitrose Recall Breaded Haddock Fillets due to Incorrect Allergen Labelling

    Supermarket chain Waitrose have been forced to recall their Frozen 2-Pack Breaded Haddock Fillets after it emerged that milk and mustard were included but not listed as ingredients, posing a serious health risk to anyone with allergies or intolerances to either of the two ingredients.

    According to the FSA, the issue was caused by the product being incorrectly packaged with battered haddock fillets, which contain the problem ingredients whilst the breaded variety does not. Details of the affected product are as follows:

    Product: Frozen 2 Breaded Haddock Fillets 300g
    Batch no: L7 038 N
    Pack size: 2
    Best before end dates: End February 2018

    No other Waitrose products are known to be affected.

    The FSA are advising that all customers who have bought the product and suffer with an allergy or intolerance to either of the two products do not eat it and instead return it to to the store from which it was purchased for a full refund.

    Waitrose have released the following statement, as reported by Express.co.uk:

    “We are recalling Waitrose Frozen 2 Breaded Haddock Fillets (date code Feb 18) because batter haddock fillets have been included instead. This contains milk and mustard - allergens which have not been declared on pack. 

    “Customers who have allergies to these ingredients should not consume this product but return it to Waitrose for a full refund. 

    “We are very sorry for any inconvenience to our customers.”
