Popular crisps Walkers, created by PepsiCo, is the latest brand to have a product recalled. Tesco is one of the supermarkets selling the festive flavour multi-pack crisps and one particular flavour is being taken off shelves. For anyone who may have bought the product recently, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) has issued a call to return the pack. 

Walkers’ maker Pepsico is recalling Walkers Mince Pies Flavour Crisps. 

The reason is because they contain milk which is not mentioned on the label. 

This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents.

The product details are: 

Pack size five x 25g (Multipack). 

Best before date of all date codes. 

The allergen is milk. 

The risk statement from the FSA is: “This product contains milk making it a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents.

As for the action taken by the company: “PepsiCo is recalling the above product from customers and has contacted the relevant allergy support organisations, which will tell their members about the recall. 

“The company has also issued a point-of-sale notice to its customers. 

“These notices explain to customers why the product is being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the product.” 

The point-of-sale notice reads: “If you have this product, please call the Consumer Care Line on 0800 274777 to receive a full refund.” 

The FSA’s advice to consumers is: “If you have bought the above product and have an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents do not eat it.” 

The Mince Pies flavour crisps are part of Walkers’ limited edition festive range which include Smoked Pigs in Blankets and Roast Potato. 

The three unique flavours have received lots of discussion online.

Paul McDonnell tweeted: “@walkers_crisps pigs in blankets good, not had roast potato yet but assume they are will be fine.. the mince pie ones however.. taste exactly like mince pies!!! My mind is going mad over this.” 

Julie Mander added: “So @walkers_crisps have the festive flavours out, and I was convinced I wasn’t going to like the #mincepie one’s but… I don’t! I can’t get over how oddly nice they actually are, #mindblown!” 

Emma Farley commented: “I thought sprout flavoured @walkers_crisps were crossing the line but #mincepie REALLY???” 

User @MrManchesterUK1 wrote: “@walkers_crisps bravo for the truly delectable Mince Pie flavour. It shouldn’t work and they should be an abomination but it actually really does and they’re not! #Christmas #mincepies.” 

It comes after anther festive product has been recalled. 

This time Lidl had asked customers to return their Deluxe Stuffed Dates.

It was due to the presence of salmonella.
