'Gluten-free' products recalled by major supermarkets


Date: 08/06/2015

A number of major supermarkets have recalled some products advertised as gluten-free because they may actually contain gluten.

An alert for Asda, Sainsbury's, Waitrose, Tesco and Morrisons has been issued covering products including pitta bread and pizza bases.

The Food Standards Agency said items "are a possible health risk" for those with a gluten allergy or intolerance.

The affected products were all made by a bakery run by food company Genius.

It said the risk to consumers was very low according to the industry standard.

A spokesman added: "Recall procedures have been put in place in order to ensure the safety of all customers which, as always, remains our first priority."

It is believed the products were contaminated by a dry ingredient used in the baking process.
