This product contains soya and wheat making it a possible health risk for anyone with coeliac disease, an allergy or intolerance to wheat or gluten, and/or an allergy to soya.
We understand that the product displays a ‘may contain’ statement for gluten however the recalled batch contains a different product with wheat as a deliberate ingredient. Whilst we do not recommend eating products with a 'may contain' statement we know that some people do choose to so this is something we wanted to highlight.
