Spar recalls chicken and prawn paella over fears it could cause allergic reactions

SPAR has recalled its own-brand frozen chicken and prawn paella over fears it could cause allergic reactions.

The convenience store chain says the product contains mollusc, fish, gluten and milk which isn’t declared on the label. 

This means the paella could be a possible health risk to anyone with an allergy or food intolerance to these ingredients. 

People who are severely allergic to molluscs or fish can experience anaphylactic shock, while an intolerance to milk and gluten can cause digestive issues such as stomach cramps.

Spar advises anyone with an allergy to these foods to return the paella to their nearest store for a full refund.

You can find your nearest Spar shop by using its online store locator tool.

You can also contact Spar on 0333 880 5115 or by filling out this online form.

The chicken and prawn paella costs £2.50 and comes in a 600g bag.

The recalled batch has a best before date of October 2021 and the barcode number 5010358010564.

You can find this information on the back of the paella pack.

Spar has recalled the paella as a precautionary measure – it hasn’t reported any illnesses from this product.

No other Spar products are affected by the recall.

A Spar spokesperson told The Sun: “We take the quality and safety of our food products very seriously.

“As a precaution, we are recalling our chicken and prawn paella 600g, as due to a packaging error the product is seafood risotto and may include milk, mollusc, fish and gluten which is not declared on the label. 

“The recall affects products with the best before date 10/2021 only. 

“We advise anyone who has purchased this item to return to store for a full refund.”

Other recalls to watch out for include these Eat Natural bars which have been pulled from shelves over fears they may contain traces of salmonella.

Sainsbury’s has also pulled its UHT milk over “possible microbiological bacteria contamination”.

And John Lewis has recalled this mattress over fears it’s unsafe for babies.
