Supermarket ASDA Recalls Cake Over Allergy Fears

The United Kingdom's supermarket giant ASDA recalled its chocolate and beetroot cake as it may contain walnuts, and this is not mentioned on the product label.

ASDA issued an allergen alert and said that the ingredient is not listed on the label, posing a health risk to those with a nut allergy. The batch of 276g cakes affected has a best before the date of February 22.

The company has asked those who have bought the cake to return it to the stores for a refund.

ASDA said, "It has been brought to our attention that a small number of packs of ASDA Extra Special Chocolate and Beetroot Cake contain ASDA Extra Special Carrot, Courgette and Orange Loaf Cake which contains walnuts."

"This was not declared on the label of the ASDA Extra Special Chocolate and Beetroot Cake. If you have purchased the ASDA Extra Special Chocolate and Beetroot Cake with the best before date as above, please bring it back to your nearest store where you will be given a full refund. You do not need your receipt. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused."

The Food Standards Agency said, "The product contains walnuts, which is not mentioned on the labeling, making it a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy to walnuts. If you have purchased the product and have an allergy to walnuts, do not eat it. Instead, return the product to the store from where it was bought for a full refund."

"ASDA has withdrawn the product from sale and have contacted the relevant allergy support organizations, which will tell their members about the withdrawal. The company will be displaying point-of-sale notices in stores. No other ASDA products are known to be affected."
