M&S recalls bean and spinach salad - 21/04/2006
 
Marks & Spencer has recalled all batches of its own brand 3 Bean & Spinach Salad with Chive Dressing, 130g, due to incorrect labelling information. The Agency has issued a Food Alert for Information.
Marks & Spencer has recalled all batches of its own brand 3 Bean & Spinach Salad with Chive Dressing, 130g, due to incorrect labelling information. The Agency has issued a Food Alert for Information.

The product contains edamame beans, which are a type of soya bean. However, the presence of soya is not clearly indicated and not specified as an allergy warning. This makes this product unsafe for individuals who are allergic to soya.

The product being recalled is:
3 Bean & Spinach Salad with Chive Dressing, 130g
Best Before: All codes
Batch number: All batches

Marks & Spencer has undertaken a full product recall. Allergy alert notices are to be placed in national press as of 20 April 2006 and point-of-sale notices will be displayed in all its stores. In addition, Marks & Spencer has been in contact with the Anaphylaxis Campaign and Allergy UK who will inform all their soya allergic members of the recall via a mailshot.

Anyone who has a soya allergy should not eat the salad. Those who have bought the product and are concerned about it can return it to the nearest Marks & Spencer store for a full refund.
