Black pudding recalled over incorrect labelling

The Real Lancashire Black Pudding Co has recalled its black pudding slices over a labelling error. 

The products have been labelled with a ‘use by’ date of 31 December 2016, when they should in fact be dated 31 December 2015. The Food Standards Agency (FSA) said consumption of the products could potentially lead to a health risk.

“The Real Lancashire Black Pudding Co is recalling the affected batch, and point-of-sale recall notices will be displayed in stores where the product is sold,” said a statement from the FSA.

“These notices explain to customers why the product is being recalled and tells them what actions to take if they have bought the product.”

The FSA advised consumers that, if they have already purchased the product, not to eat it but instead return it to the store it was bought from for a full refund. Alternatively, consumers can email with any queries.
