Food recall: The Good Taste Co. Basil Pesto Aioli Dip

Use By 29 July 2014
(Undeclared allergen)

La Bonne Cuisine Ltd has announced that as a result of a labelling error it is voluntarily recalling its 160G THE GOOD TASTE CO. BASIL PESTO AIOLI DIP.

La Bonne Cuisine’s representative Mike Pretty, Managing Director, said today that as a result of a labelling error a small number of tubs in one batch of the product has been incorrectly labelled and consequently does not declare the presence of the allergens egg and nuts (cashews).

Pretty said that the label on the lid of the recalled product states “Basil Pesto Aioli Dip” whereas the label on the pottle states “Cucumber & Mint Yoghurt Dip”. The product in the pottle is Basil Pesto Aioli Dip.
 
“The labelling error means customers are not getting accurate information about the contents of the pottle.  “Basil Pesto Aioli” Dip contains egg and nuts (cashews) and therefore, unsuitable for people who are allergic to egg or nuts (cashews). “Basil Pesto Aioli” Dip is completely safe for people who do not have sensitivity to egg or nuts (cashews)”.
