Booths Chicken Tikka Masala with Pilau Rice Pot

This Chicken Tikka Masala with Pilau Rice Pot is being recalled by the manufacturer, E H Booths & Co Ltd, because it contains cashew nuts, which are not declared in the ingredients list.

This could create a serious health hazard for those with an allergy or intolerance to nuts, possibly leading to anaphylactic shock.

Anaphylaxis

Anaphylactic shock, or anaphylaxis is potentially life threatening.

When a person goes into anaphylactic shock, their body is flooded with histamines, their lips, face and airways could swell up, their breathing might be impaired, their blood pressure could drop. This would happen within minutes of consuming the food. Some people with severe allergies only have to touch the food to get a severe allergic reaction. If they are not given adrenaline immediately, they could die. Here in the UK that is normally given via an adrenaline auto-injector; brands used are EpiPen, Emerade and Jext.

Adrenaline Auto-Injectors for those in anaphylactic shock

Call an ambulance

If you suspect someone is having an anaphylactic shock, call the emergency services immediately. In the UK, dial 999 or 112 (the European emergency number, that works here as well). Then help them with their adrenaline auto-injector. If after five minutes they have not improved, given them another injection - so they should always carry two adrenaline auto-injectors on them. Even if they seem to get better, always always get them to hospital, as they could suffer a second, biphasic reaction hours later.
