FSA orders supermarket chain to remove packet of monkey nuts because label does not say they contain nuts


NO. You cannot buy monkey nuts from branches of Boots in Lancashire. The store chain has withdrawn its 350g bags of monkey nuts because the label fails to state that the monkey nuts contain (you’re ahead of us) nuts.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has ordered 300 packets of 350g Whole Hearted Roasted Monkey Nuts to be removed from sight.

Booths technical manager Waheed Hassan tells media:

“It is our responsibility as retailers to accurately record allergy advice. In this instance, we felt a responsibility to recall the product and issue a notice to our customers who might suffer from a specific peanut allergy.”

The company adds:

If you have an allergy to peanuts, please do not consume this product and return it to your local store for a full refund. No other products are affected by this issue and we sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused.”

World ends.
