Ready meal sold in Tesco & Sainsbury’s recalled over severe allergy risk

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has warned that some packs of the Charlie Bigham’s curry ready meals contain ingredients that are not stated on the label.

Affected batches of the Thai Green Chicken Curry & Fragrant Rice may be found in Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Waitrose, all of which sell the popular meal.

A statement from the FSA claimed that the recall was made because the Thai curry meals contained “undeclared mustard”.

Mustard is one of the 14 major allergens and could cause life-threatening reactions in some cases.

The FSA claimed: “This product may contain mustard making it a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to mustard”.

People who have bought the product and have an allergy to mustard have been warned “do not eat it”.

Instead, the unopened ready meal should be returned to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.

Customers don’t need a receipt when returning to their local Tesco, Sainsbury’s or Waitrose to get the full amount (£9.50) back.

Tesco currently has two other active food recalls for bean products and Christmas stuffing mixture.

Sainsbury’s was also affected by the tinned goods recalled by Princes Group, though Waitrose does not sell the affected products.

The retailer does currently have an active recall for Rude Health granola and the Charlie Bigham’s Thai Green Curry products.
