Waitrose Stem Ginger Cookies 200g

Manufacturer: Waitrose

'Best before' date: 02 April 2016

Pack size: 200g

The FSA is issuing an updated allergy alert for 'Waitrose Stem Ginger Cookies 200g' as they contain 'Waitrose Cherry & Almond cookies 200g' due to a packaging error.

The original alert was published on 9 December 2015 which mentioned the presence of undeclared almond. However, it has since been confirmed that the product also contains sulphur dioxide which is also not mentioned as an ingredient on the packaging. This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to almond and/ or a sensitivity to sulphur dioxide.

If you have bought the above product and have an allergy to almond and/ or a sensitivity to sulphur dioxide, do not eat it. Instead, return it to the store where you bought it.

Note from Allergy UK: Allergy UK would like to thank Waitrose for their prompt and responsible attitude to this allergy alert and for covering all our mailing costs. If you have any concerns about the above product please contact our helpline on 01322 619898.
