Lidl is recalling bags of peanuts because the packets didn't say they contained nuts

Updated: 

Lidl is recalling packets of peanuts because the labels fail to mention in English that they contain nuts.

In a notice to customers, the German firm said it was recalling Alesto Honey Peanuts with a best before date of February 2017 "due to peanuts not being declared in English on a small number of packets".

The 200g bags pose "a health risk to anyone with an allergy to peanut", the Food Standards Agency (FSA) warned, posting an allergy alert on its website.

The supermarket has also issued a recall for its multi-pack strawberry, raspberry, pineapple and pear flavoured Milbona fruit yoghurts because - you guessed it - they don't mention that milk is an ingredient.

It said: "Lidl UK is recalling Milbona Fruit Yoghurt, 8 x 125g, Use by Date 18.08.16 only, due to milk not being declared in English on a small number of items.

"This means the product is a possible health risk to anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk."

Other Alesto and Milbona products are not affected by the recall, Lidl said.

Customers with allergies are advised to not eat the items and to return them for a full refund.

Lidl has contacted allergy support organisations who will inform their members of the recall.
