Marks & Spencer withdraws Strawberry & Almond crunch - 07/12/2006
 
Marks & Spencer has withdrawn batches of its own brand Strawberry & Almond Crunch breakfast cereal due to a packing error
Marks & Spencer has voluntarily withdrawn batches of its own brand Strawberry & Almond Crunch breakfast cereal due to a packing error resulting in incorrect labelling information.

This product is being withdrawn because the word 'milk' has been omitted from the allergy advice box on the packet, making the product potentially unsafe for people who have a milk allergy.

The Marks & Spencer Strawberry & Almond Crunch contains whey powder, which is declared as an ingredient. But ‘milk’ has been omitted from the allergy advice box.

Product details:
Marks & Spencer Strawberry & Almond Crunch UPC Code 0001243
