Recall Notice - Walkers Salt and Vinegar Squares - 04/09/2006
 
Walkers withdraws batches of Salt and Vinegar Squares due to incorrect labelling information
Walkers withdraws batches of Salt and Vinegar Squares due to incorrect labelling information

Walkers Snack Foods Ltd has withdrawn certain batches of its own brand Salt and Vinegar Squares due to packaging errors resulting in incorrect labelling information.

The Squares contain whey powder (from milk), which is not declared on the ingredients list. The product does declare lactose (from milk) in the ingredients list, but there is no lactose in the product as this ingredient has been replaced by whey powder. There is a risk that a consumer who is allergic to milk protein may purchase the product believing it only contains lactose (milk sugar) rather than whey (milk protein). The product is unsafe for individuals who are allergic to milk protein.

The withdrawn products are:

  • Walkers Squares Salt & Vinegar 25g: Best Before: 16.09.06 to 14.10.06 inclusive
  • Walkers Squares Salt & Vinegar 40g: Best before 16.09.06 to 21.10.06 inclusive
  • Walkers Squares Salt & Vinegar 6pk: Best before 16.09.06 to 04.11.06 inclusive
  • Walkers Squares Variety 6pk: Best before 16.09.06 to 07.10.06 inclusive
  • Walkers Squares Variety 10pk: Best before 16.09.06 to 14.10.06 inclusive
  • Walkers Family Favourites Green 10pk: Best before 16.09.06 to 14.10.06 inclusive
  • Walkers Family Favourites Blue 10pk: Best before 16.09.06 to 04.11.06 inclusive
