Sainsbury’s Withdraws Pumpkin and Pepper Soup
The UK's Food Standards Agency has announced that Sainsbury's has withdrawn some packs of its So Organic Pumpkin & Sweet Red Pepper Soup because the packs contain So Organic Celeriac & Mushroom Soup.
The presence of celeriac and celery in this soup is not mentioned on the packaging and therefore the product may be a possible risk to health for people allergic to celery, the agency stated.
The company has withdrawn the packs with the affected date code and has contacted the relevant allergy support organizations, which will inform their members of the withdrawal.
