Additional information:
The UK Food Standards Agency (“FSA”) reports the following Meringue Cake products are subject to recall:

  • Booths Lemon Meringue Cakes, sold with a best-before date 3 February 2020

==> No barcodes, UPCs, EANs or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional images of the recalled Lemon Meringue Cakes can be found on the Web site above.

According to the FSA, Booths has recalled certain batch/lots of Lemon Meringue Cake because some products may actually contain Bakewell Cake rather than the indicated Lemon Meringue Cake. Consequentially, the products may contain Almond Nuts, an ingredient not declared on the product label.
