Sign up for free personalised allergy alerts from the Food Standards Agency
29 April 2016
The Food Standards Agency is improving its free service which communicates allergy alerts, via email or texts, letting you know when a food product is recalled if it is considered an allergy risk.
You can personalise the service, by choosing which of the top 14 allergens that you would like to receive alerts about.
Foods are usually recalled or withdrawn from sale because something has happened in the manufacturing process and they should not be sold, either because the food is unsafe or because the labelling is incorrect.
You can sign up for the free service, or amend your preferences on the Food Standards Agency website.
We also highlight food alerts relating to gluten and those specific to gluten-free products in our Food Alerts service on our website and on our app. Food alerts are also sent out as push notifications on our mobile app Gluten-free on the Move. Visit www.coeliac.org.uk/app for more information on how to download it.
