The introduction of the Provision of Food Information to consumers regulations 2011 will mean that from December 2014 allergen information will have to be provided on all food (whether sold pre packed or loose).

The regulations introduce two main requirements

  •   Allergens must be highlighted in the ingredient lists of packaged foods.
  •   Allergen information must now be available for ‘loose foods’

 

Local authority enforcement officers will audit allergen control measures when carrying out inspections of catering premises.

Food Alert For Action on a red background

The FSA is making local authorities aware that smoked mackerel, catfish, barracuda and tilapia have been processed in an unapproved establishment, trading as Lloyds & Sons. If you have bought one of the products, do not eat it. The FSA has issued a Food Alert for Action, explaining the actions local authorities need to take.

Investigations at the premises found that Lloyds & Sons was smoking fish products without approval from the competent authority and a remedial action notice has been served on the premises. Some of the implicated products may still be available on sale at food premises in the London area.

Despite investigations by the enforcement authorities, it has not been possible to obtain full distribution details. There is known distribution to some specialist retail establishments in London. However, it is possible that distribution may have taken place to other establishments outside of London.
