Budget supermarket recalls mixed vegetables due to undeclared allergens

Lidl is recalling packs of '˜Green Grocer's brand of Mexican, Gourmet and Oriental Mixed Vegetables 750g because they contain milk, gluten, soya and celery which are not mentioned on the label in English.

This means the products may be a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents and/or gluten or an allergy to soya and/or celery.

A Lidl statement said: “If you bought a product (listed) above and have an allergy to milk, soya, gluten or celery, do not eat it. Instead, return it to a Lidl UK store for a full refund.”
