Store pulls nuts for lack of warning about nut content


UPI News Service, 04/26/2013 

A British supermarket chain announced it is pulling Whole Hearted Roasted Monkey Nuts from shelves because they do not warn of their peanut contents.

The Booths chain, which has multiple locations in England, including Lancashire, Cumbria, Yorkshire, Cheshire and Salford, said it will remove any packages of the nuts that do not declare the presence of peanuts on their labels, the Belfast Telegraph reported Friday.

"Booths is withdrawing some batches of its Whole Hearted Roasted Monkey Nuts, because the presence of peanuts is not declared on the label. This makes the product unsuitable for anyone with an allergy to peanuts," a Booths spokesman said. "Booths takes the accurate labeling very seriously, particularly surrounding issues on allergen advice. Our technical manager Waheed Hassan alerted the Food Standards Agency about this labeling error immediately as well as posting notices in all Booths stores."

An FSA spokeswoman said the agency supports the move.

"People who are allergic to peanuts may not be allergic to other types of nuts. Without the correct information on the packaging, people with an allergy to peanuts who might not know or make the connection between peanuts and monkey nuts, for example children, might eat the product and experience an adverse reaction," she said.
