M&S recall “non-gluten-free” Gluten Free Cakes!

It’s always quite amusing when shops get stuff wrong and have to recall products…until it’s something that could seriously affect your health.

The new Free From range, Made Without Wheat, brought out by Marks and Spencer this year has been off to a flying start. I’m definitely a fan of their to-die-for chocolate muffins!

However, the Food Standard’s Agency have now issued a report that M&S are recalling their GLUTEN FREE RICH FRUIT CAKE.

According to the FSA, the product being withdrawn is:

  • Marks & Spencer Gluten Free Rich Fruit Cake
  • ‘Display until’ date: 24 October 2010
  • ‘Best before’ date: 30 October 2010
  • Unique code: 00395120
  • Weight: 375g

The cake being withdrawn apparently contains WHEAT FLOUR due to a mis-labelling of the product.

If you have bought this cake, DO NOT EAT IT and please return it back to your store where you can get a full refund.
Stuff like this is always difficult. On the one hand, it is understandable that accidents do happen, but on the other, it is wholly unacceptable at the best of times, let alone when the mis-labelling could cause someone to be seriously ill.
Apart from this product, none of the other items are said to be affected and I still stand by the usual high-quality that M&S produce, it’s just annoying when something like this has to test your trust, what’s your views? Comment below!
