Sainsbury’s Recalls Italian Mushroom Risotto

The UK's Food Standards Agency has announced that Sainsbury's has recalled its own brand Italian mushroom risotto because the sauce contains wheat gluten and chicken which are not mentioned on the ingredients list.

This makes the product a possible health risk for people with an allergy to wheat or who are gluten intolerant, the agency said.

The product being recalled is Sainsbury's Italian mushroom risotto 400 grams with a use by date of September 14, 2008.

Sainsbury's has recalled the product and contacted the relevant allergy support organizations, who will inform their members of the recall.
