Supermarket giant Sainsbury’s has issued a product recall after products in its own ‘vegan’ labeled range were found to contain meat and dairy.
In an online release, it was revealed a Love Your Veg ready meal did in fact contain milk, pork, and beef.
Sainsbury’s product recall
The product in question is the Love Your Veg Butternut Squash & Lentil Lasagna. As a result of the recall, all customers with packs containing the use-by date of July 17 are urged to avoid eating it.
Moreover, they can return it to their nearest Sainsbury’s store for a full refund.
It was caused by a “packaging error,” Sainsbury’s claimed. Moreover, the issue is now under investigation.
“No other Sainsbury’s products have been affected by this issue. We would like to apologize for the inconvenience this may cause,” the company said.
The Food Standards Agency issued an allergy alert as the mix-up poses a health risk to anyone allergic to milk and milk constituents.
According to the organization, the product was incorrectly packed with Sainsbury’s Bolognese Melt.
Another major food brand, Itsu, had to issue a product recall in recent months.
It came after its popular vegan Gyoza Vegetable Fusion Packs contained a host of animal products.
They included crustaceans, fish, mollusks, and eggs.
