According to the FSA, Tesco has recalled certain batch/lots of Tesco White Fondant Icing from the British marketplace due to suspected mislabeling/mispackaging and consequential undeclared Almond Nuts.

Although the product was marketed, sold and delivered in packaging that indicates it is Tesco White Fondant Icing, some pouches have been incorrectly packed with Tesco Marzipan, a product that contains Almond Nuts, an allergen not declared on the ingredient label. As a direct result of this reported defect, the recalled Fondant Icing may be a health risk for anyone with an allergy to Almonds Nuts.

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

Proposed Remedy:
If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of these recalled Tesco White Fondant Icing products and could be allergic to their Almond 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 directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning, adulteration or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, please return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure neither small children nor household pets can access the suspect food.
