Irish shoppers are being warned that supermarket giant Lidl have recalled an Elderflower beverage after key information was not printed on its label.
The Food Safety Authority of Ireland said the supermarket chain begun a recall of its ‘Deluxe Elderflower Pressé’ because it contains sulphites were are not included in its ingredients, some of which are “unsafe for consumers who are allergic or intolerant to them”.
"This, therefore, makes the product a possible health risk for anyone with such allergies or intolerances,” said a FSAI spokesperson.
Lidl’s Deluxe Elderflower Pressé contains sulphite and sulphur dioxide and this is not mention on the bottle.
The supermarket chain told Independent.ie that it is now recalling all bottles of the drink, saying “Customers who are allergic or intolerant to sulphites are being urged not to consume this product and to instead return the product to a Lidl store for a full refund.”
“Signage has been erected in all Lidl stores nationwide and the relevant authorities have been notified.
“[We] apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
