Allergy Alert: British Bakeries Recalls Crumpets

February 6, 2009

The UK Food Standards Agency has alerted consumers that some crumpets produced by British Bakeries contains traces of casein (a milk protein), not declared on the product label.

The following affected crumpets, identified by code X73, are being withdrawn and relabeled:

  • ASDA ‘Smartprice’ 6 Crumpets
  • ASDA 8 Crumpets
  • ASDA 12 Crumpets
  • Sainsbury’s Basics 6 Crumpets
  • Morrisons 6 Crumpets
  • Morrisons 12 Crumpets
  • Mothers Pride 8 Crumpets

Individuals who are allergic to milk protein may experience a severe allergic reaction soon after consuming one of these products. 

Sainsbury's customers who purchased the recalled item should return their purchase to the store's customer service desk for a refund.
