Lidl, Sainsbury’s, and Waitrose are three of the supermarkets that have had to recall some items due to allergy alerts.


Nutrisure Ltd recalled Naturya Hemp Protein Powder on December 1 because of undeclared gluten.

The product is a possible health risk for anyone who has an allergy or intolerance to gluten.

This batch was only sold in Sainsbury’s stores.

According to the FSA, the pack size is 100 grams and the batch code is W02135 and is best before the end of March 2024.

Nutrisure has recalled the product and is issuing a point-of-sale notice to customers.

Customers with gluten intolerance who have purchased the item will be given a full refund from the store they bought it from.

The product is 240 grams in weight and the batch code is 21301/196.

The item is listed as being best before January 21, 2022.

Salmonella has been found in the product and is a form of bacteria that is likely to cause symptoms including fever, diarrhoea, and abdominal cramps.

The company is recalling the product and asking anyone with an egg allergy to return it to obtain a full refund.
