Doritos urgently recalls Tangy Cheese crisps as undeclared ingredient may trigger allergies – The SunJanuary 11, 2020
WALKERS is urgently recalling bags of Doritos over concerns an undeclared ingredient could trigger allergies.
Doritos Tangy Cheese flavoured crisps contain soya despite the allergen not being listed on the ingredients.
Allergy to soy, a product of soybeans, is a common food allergy in the UK.
In some cases people can go into life-threatening anaphylactic shock.
The Food Standards Agency has issued an alert warning customers about the serious labelling error.
A statement on the agency’s website reads: “Walkers Snack Foods is recalling Doritos Tangy Cheese as a precautionary measure because it contains soya which is not accurately declared on the label.
“This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to soya.
“If you have bought the above product and have an allergy to soya, do not eat it.”
The agency advises shoppers with a soy allergy to return the recalled product to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.
The affected packs are 180g in size and have a best before date of June 6, 2020.
All products with best before codes of June 13, 2020 and after are not affected.
