Allergy scare forces supermarket chain to recall chapattis
Retailer Lidl has recalled packs of chapattis, as a labelling error means they pose a potential allergy risk.
The Vitasia 8 Chapattis contain wheat (gluten) which is not mentioned in English on the label. This makes the product a possible health risk to anyone with an allergy to wheat or an intolerance to gluten.
The recall affects all 360g packs with a ‘Best before’ date of August 4 2016.
No other Lidl products are known to be affected.
The company has asked anyone with a gluten intolerance to return the product to their nearest Lidl store for a full refund.
In a statement, the company added: “If you have bought the above product and have an allergy to wheat or an intolerance to gluten, do not eat it.”
