Food recalls are issued when a product is unsafe for customers to use. For example, if an item contains an ingredient not mentioned on the label, it could cause harm to someone with allergies. 

JK Foods is recalling one of its popular products due to undeclared ingredients.

Flying Goose Sriracha Mayo Sauce is being withdrawn from shelves because it contains mustard and soya not mentioned on the packaging.

The sauce is sold at major British supermarkets including Tesco, Asda, and Sainsbury’s.

It can also be bought on Amazon.

The sauce has mustard and soya in it but these ingredients are not mentioned on its label in English.

This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone who has an allergy to mustard or soya.

The sauce’s pack size is 445ml and its best before date is August 28, 2022.

It comes in a bright orange bottle with a squeeze top.

The Food Standards Agency often publishes food recalls on its website.

Its latest food recall is the Sriracha Mayo Sauce.

In a statement, it said: “This product contains mustard and soya making it a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to mustard and/or soya.”

It also outlined what action has been taken by the company, saying: “JK Foods (UK) is recalling the above product from customers.

“Point of sale notices will be displayed in all retail stores that are selling this product.

“This notice explains to customers why the product is being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the product.”

The FSA advised: “If you have bought the above product and have an allergy to mustard and/or soya, do not eat it.

“Instead, return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.”

This is not the only product to be recalled from the shelves of British retailers in recent days.

Lidl is recalling its own brand oat milk after a video on TikTok showing lumps in the milk went viral.

Poster of the video, Luna Martin, 23, said the milk was “lumpy and sour”.

The oat milk has been withdrawn from shelves, but Lidl has assured customers it will be back in stores very soon.

A Lidl spokesperson said: “At Lidl, it is never our intention for a customer to be dissatisfied in any way and we work very closely with our suppliers to ensure that the products in our stores are of the highest possible quality.

“Following customer feedback we have recalled the affected batch and the product will be back in stores very soon.”
