Product Recall: The burgers were recalled over wrong allergen labels on the packaging.
The supplier, Yorkshire Game 17, pulled a batch of its Wild Venison Burgers because it contains soya, sulphur dioxide and/or sulphites, and wheat (gluten). Which are not emphasised correctly on the label.
According to the Food Standards Agency (FSA), which has announced the recall on its website, the company has been advised to contact the relevant allergy support organisations, which will tell their members about the recall. The company has also issued a point-of-sale notice to its customers. These notices explain to customers why the product is being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought it.
Unlabelled or incorrectly labelled allergens are a common cause for food recalls in the United Kingdom. There are currently more than 10 ongoing recalls caused by the issue on the FSA’s website. In the last week alone there have been three.
