Co-Op has issued a recall for one of its products because of an allergy concern.

The store has recalled their Co-Op 2 Salmon En Croute because of undeclared prawns.

Due to a packaging error some packs have been incorrectly labelled.

This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to prawns or crustaceans.

The packs affected have a used by date of November 11 and November 12.

The Food Standards Agency said: “Co-op is recalling the above product from customers and has contacted 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 the product.”

If you have bought the product and have an allergy to prawns or crustaceans, you should not eat it but return it to your nearest Co-Op store for a full refund.

What is an allergy alert?

Sometimes there will be a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold.

Then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product).

Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.

When there is a food allergy risk, the FSA will issue an Allergy Alert.
