Sausages recalled due to incorrect allergen labels

Four of F L Edge & Son Ltd’s sausage products have been withdrawn from shelves over allergen concerns. 

The East Harling-based company’s plain sausage, chipolata sausage, the harling pork sausage, and its sage and onion sausages have been taken off the market due to the labelling not recognising wheat or celery in the ingredients.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) website offered advice to customers who have already bought the products: “If you have bought one of the above products and have an allergy to wheat and/or celery, do not eat it. Instead, return the product to the store from where it was bought.”

The removal concerns all products with date codes of 16 September 2015 up to and including 23 September.

“Point-of-sale notices will be displayed in the stores that distributed the product. This will include Tesco and Morrisons. F L Edge & Son will be contacting the relevant allergy support organisations, which will tell their members about the recall,” explained the FSA.

No other products from F L Edge & Son are known to be affected.
