A UK supermarket has recalled one of its pasta products as it did not display some information on the label.

Sainsbury’s has recalled its Vegetable Ravioli in Tomato & Herb Sauce with a ‘best before’ date of end of October 2016, as it may contain Vegetable Spaghetti Bolognese, which contains soya and celery not mentioned on the label.

This makes the product a possible health risk for anyone who has an allergy to soya and/or celery.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) released the following details: Product name: by Sainsbury’s Vegetable Ravioli in Tomato & Herb Sauce

Pack size: 400g, best before date: end of October 2016. No other Sainsbury’s products are known to be affected.

Allergen: soya and celery. This product contains soya and celery, making it a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to soya and/or celery.

The advice given by the FSA is that if you have bought the above product and have an allergy to soya and/or celery, please do not eat it. Instead, return it to the store where it was bought for a full refund.
