Allergen Recall: Booths Honey & Spelt Bread

Allergen Recall: Booths Honey & Spelt Bread

Spelt Bread

Booths Honey & Spelt Bread


Booths Honey & Spelt Bread, labelled as Malted Flake Bloomer Bread on the back of the pack, is being recalled because it contains not one, but four allergens that are not mentioned on the label.

The allergens

These allergens are barley (gluten) and spelt (gluten; spelt is a type of wheat), lupin, sesame and soya. This means that anyone with an allergy or intolerance to any of these three allergens is at risk of health issues. These could be relatively mild, but they could also kill a person if they go into anaphylactic shock.

This is also not the first recall that E H Booths & Co Ltd are being forced to make this week - they've had to recall their Chicken Tikka Masala with Pilau Rice Pot because they contained cashew nuts, which were also not declared...
