Additional information:
The UK Chartered Trading Standards Institute (“CTSI”) reports the following Spice Pastes are subject to this recall:

  • Kumar’s Rendang Spice Paste, sold in 80ml tubs with a batch code of 5585984 and a best-before date of 18-03-2016
  • Kumar’s Besengek Spice Paste, sold in 80ml tubs with a batch code of 5585987 and a best-before date of 19-03-2016

Please consult the photograph above for details of the Spice Paste’s packaging, design and retail presentation. An additional variation of the recalled Spice is pictured on the Web site above.

According to the CTSI, Rendang Spice Paste and Kumar’s Besengek Spice Paste have been packed incorrectly and actually contain Kumar’s Korma Spice Paste, which contains cashew nuts. This packaging error means consumption poses a high risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to cashew nuts or nuts of any kind.

==> For information about Nut Allergy (including Cashews, Peanuts and other Tree Nuts), please consult the “Allergens & Intolerances” tab at the top of this page.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession these recalled Spice Pastes and could be allergic to their cashew nut ingredients, have a close family member who is allergic or has previously experienced Anaphylaxis or are unsure of your allergy status, please do not consume them. Instead, return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
