Recall: Sainsbury’s Almonds and Flaked Almonds

The following notice has been issued by the Food Standards Agency:

Sainsbury’s is recalling packets of ‘by Sainsbury’s Almonds’ and ‘by Sainsbury’s Flaked Almonds’ because a limited number of packs contain Brazil nuts, which are not mentioned on the label. This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to Brazil nuts.

No other Sainsbury’s brand products are known to be affected.

Sainsbury’s is recalling the above products from customers and has issued a point-of-sale notice to its customers. The company has also contacted the relevant allergy support organisations, which will tell their members about the recall.
